Why a Tumbler is the Best Option for Cleaning Brass in Bulk

Vibratory tumblers from Berry’s Bullets are the ultimate solution for bulk brass cleaning. Here are the key benefits of using our tumblers:

  1. Uniform Cleaning: The vibratory action ensures that each piece of brass is evenly exposed to the cleaning media, providing consistent results across all brass casings.
  2. Efficiency: Designed for bulk processing, our tumblers can handle large volumes of brass at once, significantly reducing the time spent cleaning compared to manual methods.
  3. Superior Shine: Our tumblers are adept at polishing brass to a high shine, effectively removing persistent stains and oxidation for a mirror-like finish.
  4. Deep Cleaning: With the addition of media, our tumblers can thoroughly clean both the exterior and interior of brass cases, including primer pockets and flash holes.
  5. Time-Saving: Compared to hand washing or using an ultrasonic cleaner, vibratory tumblers save a considerable amount of time, making them ideal for most reloaders.

These features ensure that our tumblers not only clean your brass effectively but also enhance the overall performance of your reloaded ammunition.

Our Vibratory Brass Tumbler Offerings: Berry’s Model 400 and QD-500

We have two outstanding vibratory tumblers: the Model 400 and the QD-500. Here is how they stack up against one and other:

Model 400 Brass Tumbler: Built from high-quality injection molded parts, the Model 400 is designed for durability and efficiency. It features a large, smooth bowl that facilitates bulk cleaning of brass cases and is compatible with a variety of cleaning media. This tumbler ensures thorough polishing and removal of primer residue, offering visibility through a clear polycarbonate lid and reliability with a motor backed by a 3-year warranty.

QD-500 Brass Tumbler: The QD-500 elevates brass cleaning with its patented quick-detach system, allowing easy removal of the bowl to minimize spills and simplify media separation. Its larger bowl enhances the cleaning cycle, allowing users to clean more brass at one time. The clear domed lid provides superior visibility and durability, making this model ideal for serious reloaders aiming to streamline their cleaning process.

Both tumblers are crafted to meet the demands of extensive use, ensuring clean brass is never far away.

How to Use Berry’s Vibratory Tumblers

Step 1: Choose Your Media

Start by selecting your preferred cleaning media. Options include corn cob media, walnut media, or stainless steel pins, which are all excellent for removing oxidation and polishing brass to a high shine.

Step 2: Load Your Brass

Add your brass cases to the tumbler. Ensure not to overload; check the “Tumbler Brass Capacities” tab on our website for guidance on how many casings each model can comfortably clean.

Step 3: Add Polishing Additives

For an extra shine, squeeze in some of Berry’s Brass Bright Polish. This will help remove any remaining dirt or primer residue and enhance the luster of your brass.

Step 4: Start Tumbling

Secure the lid, turn on the machine, and let it run. The QD-500’s clear domed polycarbonate lid allows you to check the progress without interrupting the cleaning cycle. Typically, the tumbling process will take between 2 to 3 hours, depending on the volume of brass and the type of media used. The clear lids on our tumblers allow for easy monitoring of the process.

Step 5: Finish and Separate

Once the tumbling is complete, use a media separator like Berry’s Pro Rotary Brass Sorter/Media Separator to easily extract the shiny brass from the cleaning media. If you are wet tumbling use a paper towel after separating to help speed up the process of drying your cleaned brass.

Pro Tip: Take a used dryer sheet, tear it into four strips, and add it to your media. This will capture a significant amount of dirt and primer residue. Be sure to remove the strips while wearing gloves and avoid breathing in the dust during this process, as primer residue can be harmful. Dispose of the strips in a covered garbage can.

Dry Tumbling vs. Wet Tumbling: Which is Right for You?

At Berry’s Bullets, our vibratory case tumblers offer the flexibility to perform both dry and wet tumbling, catering to your specific brass cleaning needs.

Dry Tumbling: Utilizes dry media for effective surface cleaning and polishing. It’s ideal for regular maintenance and quick sessions, providing good results with minimal mess.

Wet Tumbling: Adds water or some sort of cleaning solution (typically dish soap) for a thorough, deep clean that targets stubborn residues inside primer pockets and flash holes. This method is perfect for heavily soiled brass, ensuring a comprehensive clean.

Whether you prefer the simplicity of dry tumbling or the thoroughness of wet tumbling, our tumblers are designed to accommodate both techniques, allowing you to achieve excellent cleaning results every time.
