    Dry the cases in a dehydrator (or the oven when your Mrs is out, haha)
    Cheers mate will try that
    Im cleaning mainly black powder brass from my 45-70 and 38-50 Hepburn these days so requires alot more cleaning than the modern smokeless powders the ultra sonic dose a good job of getting it clean but I still need to Media Tumble it to remove tarnish
    Was hoping wet tumbling would help with double handling everything

    Only clean my smokeless brass every couple of times I use it
    Unless it’s dirty for some reason
    But im only shooting 50 maybe 100 max per year through the modern rifle for hunting and a few practice shots and zero checks so as a result doing sweet fa reloading as most people know it

    Ah, BP.

    Carry a jar of soapy water and drop your brass in as soon after shooting as you can.

    Not infalliable but helps.

    Definitely works
    I used to do that but have gone away from it
    When I get home from the range I like to decap all my brass
    Before cleaning it
    If it’s wet it turns that into a messy job
