Ordered a Cabelas brand tumbler (Berry Mfg.) got it today, it came with a strainer, corncob media and some brass polish. I knew it would show up at the shop today so I brought 150 rounds of 6.8 to work and as soon as I had the box opened I had it cleaning for me. I decided on the Cabelas tumbler for a few reasons, price had a bit to do with it but the two biggest things were the warranty (life on the plastics, 3 years on the motor) and it was way quieter than my buddies Lyman. Ran it for 2.5 hours using the corncob and polish with a sample pack of Flitz metal polish thrown in and my brass came out lookin brand new. I don't know if it really took the full 2.5 hours to get it all shiny or not cuz I took off on a few errands for an hour or so, but 2.5 hours seems ok to me since I didn't have to do anything to clean em up. So far I'm happy with it and I have it running right now cleaning up about 100 .223 rounds it's about 2 feet from my T.V. and I haven't had to turn the volume up on it to hear over the tumbler. It's a win for now.
