The 5 Best Brass Tumblers 2021 (Both Wet & Dry)

Reloading your ammo can help save money but it is also a great way to be more involved with your shooting.

For reloading many items are generally required, one of which is a brass tumbler.

An amazing way to clean your excessive amount of brass is to use a brass tumbler. A brass tumbler can help you get your work done faster.

A brass tumbler turns the tarnished cases into clean and professional-looking cases. They are also safe to use. A cleaner brass will also protect your dies from gathering debris.

Note that there are two types of Tumblers ‘Wet’ and ‘Dry’. Both have their advantages.  The wet cleans both the inside and outside of the brass case but requires the brass to be dried after use in the tumbler.  Dry cleans just the outside of the case but you can start the reloading process immediately.

Tarnished brass looks unprofessional and is also be a safety hazard.
