What are some ways that you guys clean your once fired brass besides a tumbler? Also, how many times can you safely get a new reload out of them before you have to pitch them?

I use simple green, hot water and a 5 gallon bucket, works great. I've always done it this way, I don't even own a tumbler

3 parts water 1 part simple green, just enough to cover the brass in a bucket. Simple green is a hell of a lot cheaper than cleaning media. Once they're clean rinse them off and set them on a towel to dry overnight, also I don't just let them sit in the simple green, I shake them around and stir it with my hands, works really well
