I put two sheets (torn into 2" strips) in the last couple of loads of brass, and if nothing else, it should make the media last longer...the sheets get real dirty.....Bountyhunter said:
What is the walnut used for at Wally World? I had heard of the corn cob as pet bedding but didn't know they had Walnut shells as well.chance said:After about 6000 rounds thru the media it starts getting pretty dirty. When I started folks were saying they could get about a year out of their media so I started running the tumbled longer AND LONGER. Finally said to heck with it, this stuff (corncob and walnut shells from wally's) is so cheap I can replace it as needed. Put in a new batch and only needed to run the tumbler for about 1 to 1.5 hours instead of 2.5/3 hours. Keeping the tumbler filled with somewhat clean media ends up costing about 50 centavos a month and probably saves a lot more than that on the electric bill.
