But if you put them into the tumbler AFTER they've had the ultrasonic bath, boy do they shine. Two downsides to that: (1) it's another step; and (2) now your diggin' media out of the flash holes because you deprimed the cases before they went into the bath. I HATE that.
Or, another option would be to put the loaded cartridges into the tumbler for ten minutes after they're done.....but there is much debate around here about how dangerous that could be.
To me, that's all about aesthetics at that point and I don't really care what they look like before they go into the chamber!
