Purchased a Frankford Arsenal Rotary Tumbler to give this a shot for some of my rifle ammo.
If you are even remotely thinking about getting one,
go do it.
Do it now!
I let it run for 3 hours, which was likely much longer than it needed to run, but WOW, let me say that again WOW.
After YEARS, and I mean, 20+ years of corncob, walnut, etc, I realize I was wasting my time.
This is what I started with
THIS is the real deal. Clean inside and out.
The kit came with a sample soap/softener, and a pack of stainless steel pins, and its really a “dump the stuff in and hit go” This method takes a little longer, that I will admit. You need to rinse and dry the brass well, that takes some time. But the juice is worth the squeeze. Cost of operation should be less over time, as you wont be rebuying media or additive. Another plus is that you wont be breathing all that crap/dust as you sift the brass from media. That alone is worth the upgrade.
This is a full 10 out of 10 Reloader-Rob recommendation!
Why didn’t someone tell me earlier?!?!?!
Be safe, and save me your brass!
In my push to become more “educated” and gain credentials for more of my skills, I took a few days off work to attend some NRA classes.
Since 1871, a major objective of the National Rifle Association has been to provide education and training in the safe and proper use of firearms. Knowing how to shoot is an important requirement for NRA instructors, but you will also need to know how to teach others to shoot. NRA Instructor Training Courses help you develop the additional knowledge, skills and techniques needed to organize and teach courses in the NRA Basic Firearm Training Program.
Training Counselors will evaluate candidates’ performance based on their ability to handle the firearms with confidence, use of appropriate training aids, following the lesson plans and meeting all learning objectives, while utilizing the teaching philosophies expected of NRA Certified Instructors. Candidates can also expect to learn the NRA discipline specific instructional methods and evaluating and improving the performance of beginning shooters. Candidates will be provided with the NRA Trainer’s Guide, appropriate Lesson Plans and Outlines, Basic Course Student handbooks, certificates, basic student examinations, Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program booklet, Basic Firearm Training Programs Brochure, Gun Safety Rules brochure, NRA Trainer’s Examination and NRA discipline specific instructor examination (minimum passing grade is 90%).
