    I think I need to get some Lee lube. I wet tumbled the cases with Dawn and pins and the whole batch came out green and sticky.

    The dry tumbler is correcting things now...

    Hot soapy water, hot water rinse then dry on a cookie sheet in the oven.

    That Lee lube is really good stuff.
    They also claim that itis inert and won't contaminate powder at all, so you needn't worry about getting it out of the necks.

    What kind of lube were you trying to get off?
    I know that one time wet tumbling Imperial wax just turned everything grey.
    I washed the pins with soap and water, then re-tumbled everything with soap and water and everything came clean.
    I'm not sure that I've wet tumbled wax lubed cases since, probably not.

    This stuff came with the lube pad.

    Thankfully the dry tumbler got the brass shiny again.

    I'll clean the wet tumbler tomorrow with a cycle of some rogue 9mm brass and the pins.

    Then back to the rifle brass project.

    I do appreciate all of the replies.

    Hmm, never heard of it before, looks interesting.
    It says water will clean it up, might be worthwhile to see if a coffee can, some hot water and a squirt of dishsoap would do the trick.

    Eh, I'm getting lazy

    I use dillon spray lube.

    If the cartridges still feel tacky when I've finished loading I'll roll half a dozen at a time between 2 paper towels between my hands.

    Good to go

    I also don't bother polishing brass until I can see my face in it - the gun doesn't care.

    A cloth and regular gun cleaning solvent. While sitting in front of the TV. Any kind of wet tumbling adds another step of drying.
