Yes that is correct. Get your paws on a good reloading manual and read it over a few times, that will get you started. As for tumbling, I tumble with walnut media first, then deprime, then tumble with corn media to polish them up nice. The corn media easily removes the sizing lube. Then the brass gets my smudgy finger prints all over them while prepping the primer pockets and trimming etc. So after the cases are completely loaded, I'll tumble them for another 15 minutes to clean up the cases and give them a final polish so they are gleaming clean.
