No sense waiting for a mod to split a thread around here so I'm taking matters into my own hands.
Mod Edit: I split your post as requested. http://www.doodiepro...=+brass +monkey

Ain't no one got time for that!
I could see participating (not winning) in the local tactical long range matches. Challenges include shots to 700 yards, all different size targets, positions, required use of holdovers, etc., especially when they mix in pistol as an equalizer. But not enough free time so USPSA/pistol wins. Bench rest? Even I am not anal retentive/OCD enough for that game.
Brass cleaning is turning out to be a much larger chore than brass processing.
I started swapping my 1050 223 tool head from 223 brass prep to 223 loading last night. Still need to chrono my VV133 load workups. Not sure if/when I will get a chance to accuracy test worked up loads.
You need a cement mixer for the brass cleaning. Makes things easier.
Or build this. Almost 2k .223 capacity between 2 drums.https://youtu.be/S-B7C2urAMo
I like it, but my fabrication-fu and automation-fu skills are weak. More of a [former] software guy reaching out slowly into the universe of such things.
Go with the harbor freight cheapy cement mixer. It cost less than the Thumbler Tumbler.
Oh yea, NOW we are talking!!!
$140 + $7 shipping + $14 tax. I can't be bothered to go pick it up for that ... although ... shipping might be awful this time of year and I could use it now.
Finger hovering over the "Confirm" button on the HF web site. Maybe I just need to go for a ride in a little while and go pick one up.
I might need more pins. 7 lbs might be a bit light but worth a shot. 60 lb load - maybe 12 lbs pins - 16 lbs for a couple gallons of water = maybe 30 lbs of brass?
