Greg Farlow: why ? because i had this laying around from my rock polishing days and
thought i`d throw some dirty brass in and see what happens .
River man: How is it working out for cleaning brass? What container is that, or what
was in it, and where did you get it. Thanks
Pushyhog: I guess by now you have learned to use SS media, dawn, water, lemi-shine if
you want it to look like jewelry .
Brett Hobbs: If you use lead cast bullets I was talking to a guy that reloaded 100 .45
ACP rounds for 5 bucks. The brass was used before but in low powered
charges so it will last a long time.
Matthew Lowdermilk: Annealing the ends with torch before sizing.
romansten9: @lavid2006 Well, then you are paying too much because a lot of people
reload handgun ammo for that price!
fusionstar916: @lavid2006 why throw money at something that you could build yourself or
have laying around?
briansmobile1: Not a bad lil set up- great "man cave"
romansten9: @lavid2006 because if you save 30 bucks you could reload 600 rounds of ammo
and go shooting!
A.M. WYO: @snookyyyy holy crap thats a great idea, ill have to get my old rock
polisher set up, didnt even think about that
Jonathan Oxlade: will a tumbler be ideal for not just reloading but for selling like clean
brass bullet to people to use for reloading because reloading is too hard
for me to do and i rather sell the used shells for a very low price of £10
per a bag of 1000 shells
Greg Farlow: Hi Mate , it works well. Just made out of an old washing machine motor and
some other bits i had laying around the shed. The container is a 4lt
plastic jar i had stolen out of the wifes kitchen (they sell olives and
pickles in these - check out your local supermarket for the big bulk size
ones). I originally built it to polish rocks but thought i might use it for
poilishing brass as well. the thing is about 10 years old now and still
John K: @disturbedone5009 not true about the cast bullets not being match ammo. i
shoot .5 inch groups with my 45-70 and 405grain cast bullets with 3f goex
at 100 yards. my .243 gets the same groups with a 95 grain gas check. match
ammo shoots the same out of the .243.
Brett Hobbs: How is that cutting things out? If you can find them for free every time
you need it then it is free and you don't count the cost of the brass and
thegenrl: do you have a way to keep the shells from splitting at the end? i get like
3 reloads and they start splitting at the end.
GadgetsNGear: @briansmobile1 Couldn't agree more, love what you've done with the place!
dills2403: were give me the website..
romansten9: @lavid2006 Many people reload for 5 cents a round. I'm talking about target
shooting ammo. The whole point a lot of people reload is to save money. Of
course people obtain free components. Why not?? You can re-use brass (thats
what "reload" means!) You can re-use lead! (or get tire weights free) You
can buy primers for 3 cents each (or less) powder costs one cent or less.
If you buy low cost equipment it pays for itself real quick. You can buy
bullets and brass if you like to throw money away.
River man: Thanks, I wish I had read your post earlier today. I just sold an wahing
mashine to a fella this afternoon. So now its time to go find a washing
machine motor..again.... The youtube community is a wonderful place to see
solutions like yours. Thanks again. What part of the world are you posting
Brett Hobbs: How are cast bullets cutting corners? The reason to use cast rounds is to
reduce price allowing for more shooting. If you are trying to make match
ammo you won't use cast bullets but reloading is still far cheaper than
factory match. And yes why would you not say that is free ammo because it
is free to you.
Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
