Since I haven't had time to build a work bench in our new house yet, I've put my shooting table to use as a reloading bench. Everything won't fit on it at once, but it works just fine. Plus, it's portable! :) I can strip it down and pack the table in my trunk in about 5 minutes, and re-assembly is the same. Posted ImagePosted Image

I've done the same thing with mine in the field. They work pretty well and are plenty sturdy. Hey your brass looks a lot better, did you get your tumbler and media working better? :)

Yup. The walnut media really does them well, and the corn finishes them off. I put in some cloth strips to help collect the dust from the treated Lyman media, it seems a bit exessive to me.

I knew the corn cob would do the trick for you as the final polish. :o I've never tried the cloth strips. ;) The polish I use in my walnut is a liquid that you just use a cap full each or every other batch. :)

Too much dust, put a teaspoon of kerosene in with the tumbling media. 'bout twice a year works for me.A17Shooter
