I know most of you guys already used crushed walnut A.K.A. "Lizard Bedding," but I just decided to try some out today since the uncooked rice thing was not working out to well. Rice is hard to get out of certain sized cases, does not strain through my colender very well to seperate from the brass after cleaning, and is LOUD while tumbling. I really did not think there would be such a huge difference in the noise level from one media to another, but I seriously cannot even hear the brass going right now with the walnut. I shot about 100 rounds at the range today and came home with about 600-800 of assorted calibers. That means I will be getting to see how very well the new media works out for me tonight. I just always add a couple drops of liquid turtle wax for polish and they look brand new when finished. I apologize if this is a scattered post, I have been drinking an awful lot of Moosehead Lager tonight and might feel slightly happy.
