    Brasso DOES weaken the case. This was tested in military armories during WWI and again during WWII. There are cleaners out there which are safe and not terribly expensive and Hoppe's No9 doesn't have enough amonia to be significant. Personally, I use a homebuild tumbler built on the model of the lapidary tumbler. There are also plans around for a homebuilt vibratory tumbler. One of either type is well worth the money, AFTER deciding to stay with the hobby.

    That will be $0.02, please. Cash only.

    Thanks for all the advice guys, I do appriciate every word of it. As yet, I haven't gotten any of the manuals, but I will pick at least one of them up on my next trip to the gun shop. I've been trolling through the goods at, and so far the most attractive kit...(offering the most for the least) this Lee Anniversary kit. Lee want's $109.00 for it, but Midway has them for $65.99, and like I said before, it comes with everything except the dies, and the tumbler. I may go ahead and order it, then read the manual that comes with it before investing in powder, primers and bullets.

    I did sign up to try and win a complete Dillion outfit, now that would be cool, it comes with a tumbler and electronic scale....

    You are doing just fine.

    Start small.

    Build your experience.

    Don't be afraid to do it.

    I was in the same position you are in back in February of this year.

    I never looked back. Its just too fun to be legal!

    Tony...I started out with that Lee kit more years ago than I care to admit. It has everything you need. I bought it from Midway too and the price was around $50.00 at the time. Inflation is rearing its ugly head.
