Seems to be a lot of concern about this. But if the tumbler tops are sealed as this one is:

http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/product/standard-item.jsp;jsessionid=Y11BKD5KE1GEFLAQBBKCCNVMCAEFKIWE?_DARGS=/cabelas/en/common/catalog/item-link.jsp_A&_DAV=MainCatcat602007-cat20853_TGP&id=0012554212867a&navCount=2&podId=0012554&parentId=cat20853&masterpathid=&navAction=push&catalogCode=IJ&rid=&parentType=index&indexId=cat20853&hasJS=true&_requestid=125614

then wouldn't the only exposure be when the cases are separated from the media?

I would prefer tumbling on my workbench but certainly move to an outside area when emptying the tumbler.

Anyone?

As has been said in the other post about the same topic, as long as you keep the lid on while tumbling and wash your hands before eating/drinking/licking your fingers, and keep any mess cleaned up, you are at worse exposure while picking up freshly fired cases at the range.

Don't eat the media, either.
