    Just don't get caught!:p

    Okay, so what I really did was use the dry setting after running them through some liquid cleaner. The wife still gave me "that" look.:fire:

    They would dry faster without the primers in them. And don't let the CA. Attorney General see that picture.............

    Hope this helps.

    I'm not sure if you would want to expose your plates and silverware to lead like that, brass contains lead and most primers. :( Unless I'm missing something, of course that could be your designated brass dishwasher. :D

    That sure gave my wife a laugh, then the comment of "That won't happen in my dish washer in my life time." Damn! And she's way younger then me...:D

    I just used the dishwasher to dry them, worked great, even with the primers still in place. Heats the brass up and drys them out pretty fast.

    Maybe next time I could throw them in the oven.:neener:

    50 shooter...You will have to forgive some people for being soo afraid of lead. Even if you did run them through the wash cycle I doubt that there would be any lead left in the dish washer...God forbid you wash the cases with your laundry...:D

    They, not knowing that is is so easy to avoid the heavy metal. Of course my brain is fried because of all the years in the large (and small) engine repair and rebuilding occupation. Not to mention all the years pumping that leaded gasoline in my younger years...:banghead:

    OMG thats actually pretty funny. dont worry about the lead. some people heck 25 years ago we were all eating off of plates and cups that had lead in them. Same time almost every house in america was painted with paint that had lead in them.
