    The media is available in a small 3mm bead size. I was thinking about using this product on 30.06 brass.

    No, crushed walnut at the pet store is to cheap and I don't see how anything else could work that much better.

    Wet tumbling in ceramic is great for black powder brass, but way too much work for smokeless cases.

    I use ceramic media, although I didn't buy it from Cabelas so I don't know if it's exactly the same stuff. What I use works very well and allows you to decap the cases first so the primer pocket gets cleaned. It is used wet so you need a tumbler that can be used with liquid. I find it easier to use than dry media. I've only used it with straight-walled pistol cases though; it's possible that the media might get jammed in a bottle-necked case.

    It was a mess and not of any value over regular tumbling in media for smokeless cases. Don't know about black powder cases, I have no experience with those.

    I've used the Cabelas ceramic for a couple of years. It works really well on tarnished brass (nasty range pickups). But it is a PITA to separate and dry the brass so I don't use it much anymore. Now I use walnut shell from the local feed store @ $11.00 for 55lb bag.

    If any of you wanna sell some of the angle cut ceramic, I'm looking for about 20 lbs. Any quantity will help.

    E-Mail me if you have some to sell or know where I can source some in bulk.

    I built a big rotary and need to feed it.
