......... the Tufnut media from the primer pockets of 2500 freshly polished .44 cases........

There must be a gadget that can do this for you?

It's not every one mind you, but about 1 in 7 have a large grain of media jammed .......

Any ideas? Sensible answers only on a postcard please to the usual address....

I use one of the Dillon media seperators. (big tumbling cage sort) That gets 99% of the bits out of the primer pockets...

Hmmmm, I suppose the cases being bashed against each other might dislodge some of the more stubborn bits........ Will have a look at the Dillon gadget via Google....

Run them through a de-capping only die, before you load
(For those with a dillon progressive)

Cheers Paul,

Have just set up my 650 and had never considered that until an IM arrived this afternoon....

I thought that a second shipping order from Dillon could have been avoided, but you live and learn...

The procedure now appears (for .44 only I might add): De-prime and resize, tumble / polish, de-prime a second time then:

a. Hand prime and reload


b. Press prime and reload

The above (a) & (b) options are not set in stone as I haven't decided which to use yet...
