I'm still using the LYMAN 1200 vibrating tumbler I bought when they 1st came out 35+yrs ago. Treated corncob at 1st then the cheaper untreated kind. About 10yrs later I got a THUMBLERS vibrating tumbler. Very quiet. After about 5 yrs the inside of the drum disintegrated leaving black scum that had to be scrubbed off the 300 once fired .44WCF cases with steel wool. I put the 1200's drum on it and got a 2200 upgrade for the old 1200's base. They are both still going strong.
I got a LYMAN sonic cleaner about 3yrs ago. Had to, my buddy had a propensity for picking up every case he could find at the range. I made a Drying Rack by shellacing a 1x8x36 board wrapping the ends with duct tape, and covering the surface with a 1" grid of GALVANIZED 2 1/2" finishing nails. Drop a case over a nail, squirt a little air to clear the primer pocket, place in CA sun, dry in about an hour.
Never tried rice, white, brown, dirty or otherwise. Not dryer sheets, although I use dryer sheets to wipe out powder measure hoppers before filling.
Long time Caster/Reloader, Getting back into it after almost 10yrs. Life Member NRA 40+yrs, Life S.A.S.S. #375. Does this mean a description of me as a fumble-fingered knuckle-draggin' baboon. I also drool in my sleep. I firmly believe that true happiness is a warm gun. Did I mention how much I HATE auto-correct on this blasted tablet.
