As for drying, depends on how much of a hurry I am in. Usually not, as I have lots of brass (probably too much - can that be possible?)
After rinsing I shake the cases out well in a plastic colander. Then dump them into a "flour sack" towel ($1 Store). Shake them around real good. That gets most of the moisture out. Summertime, I spread them in the sun. Otherwise, I just dump 'em on another dry towel and spread them out. Overnight is usually enough drying. Wintertime, near a heat outlet helps.
Dried some in the oven once at maybe 200 degrees.
IIRC, that tended to darken the brass somewhat.
Not enough heat to soften it, though.
