My Case tumbler died over the weekend. Thinking about getting the Hornady M-2. Anybody have one
and what do you think?

Thanks

Me and tumblers have never had a good relationship. Over the years I have had 2 Frankford Arsenal and an RCBS to die on me. A couple years ago I bought the Lyman Turbo 2500 on sale at Midway. I have probably put more brass through it than all the other combined and she is still running strong ... Wish I could comment on the Hornady M2, but I have not used it .. when this one dies, I just might try it!! :lol:

I don't polish brass. I am sure it is clean but not shiny. No, my dies don't wear out quicker. There is no practical difference between shiny ammo and dull ammo. My ammo is a s accurate and reliable as anyone elses.

The big advantage is, the brass scroungers at pistol matches leave my dull brass on the ground.

When I started reloading, there was no such thing as a tumbler (1957).

I have the Lyman 1200 Turbo Pro with Auto Flo, if it breaks I am buying another one just like it.

i got a Frankford Arsonal several years ago and it use to run a week at a time when i was gone out of town, id put some really dirty brass in there and it would be like new when i got home :lol4:

I just got another FA a few months ago so i could tumble more than a few peices of brass at a time and both of them are doin good..

Sorry no good info here, move along.. :thanx:

Thanks for the replies. I ordered the Hornady and it came in yesterday. First impressions, appears well made, I tumbled some last night did a good job, quieter than my other tumbler because of that my wife said I should have bought one a long time ago.

whatever it takes to keep the wife happy...I run mine in the kitchen all the time cause I keep emptying it...annoy's her.

I've never seen the need to run a batch much over an hour or so anyway....I'm just looking for clean enough...to save wear and tear on my dies....

A few dryer sheets in the bottom of the bowl with Media seems to capture a lot of crud and speeds up the process
