I use a Frankford Arsenal wet tumbler. I only use the SS pins on rifle cases (cleans primer pockets). The insides of pistol cases do not need to be shiny.

I use Turtlewax Car Wash/Wax and Lemi-Shine.

I would dry the cases in the sun. In Ohio, that presented a problem in the winter. I bought a cheap Harbor Freight food dehydrator to dry the cases.

I gave away my dry tumbler to a new reloader.

I bought a Frankford Arsenal wet tumbler. I had buckets of brass that was covered with mud and really a mess. One hour in the wet tumbler and it looked like new. Really surprised me how well it worked. I do not use the pins, they are a real pain and my brass looks just as good without using them. I use the Turtlewax Car Wash/Wax, Lemi-Shine and about 1/4 cup of white vinegar then just dry in the sun. I have always used a dry tumbler but that would not have cleaned that muddy brass at all. If I can pick up my brass right after I shoot it I still dry tumble but for anything else wet is the way to go. I have done 5 five gallon buckets full of brass this summer and the Frankford tumbler is still running like new.
