Some of us are proud of our reloads. We want them to look good? There are 2 kinds of ammunition. That which is accurate and that which is not. Tarnished brass does not determine the reliability.

It doesn't do any harm and makes the OP feel better about it. He's not forcing YOU to tumble your boolits. What do you care?

personally, i'd tumble them too. it's not like it's costing a lot of labor to do it to have some nice and shiny bullets for reloading. the hardest part is getting them out of the media.

That's why you lay claim to a colander from the kitchen. 5 gallon bucket, colander sits on the rim, pour in media with bullets. Shake and media is now in the bucket and bullets are media free. I do this for my brass too.

Why not polish your "Primers"? Even new primers are often tarnished. Now lets see who can separate the mouse sh&t from the Buck Wheat?

So I suppose you don't wash your car?

Polish your shoes?

Vacuum your rugs?

None of that helps with the function of those items but people do it anyways...I wonder why...

Just let it go bud...
