Are those shakers about the only way to clean cases. I have a lot of empty casing that I will be reloading and was curious about those shaker things. Reminds me of a rock tumbler I had as a kid. Are there down sides to them? I find the cases get dirty quickly after reloading because of the residue oil left on the case. I am thinking it would be easier to examine the cases too if there clean. How long does it take to clean them. Do you normally clean them before doing any resizeing or after? After resizing there would normally be primers in so I was thinking maybe not a good idea. Any thoughts or ways you guys are dealing with this would be helpfull.
