Does anyone here use the Hornady Lock N Load Sonic Cleaner, or any other sonic cleaner for brass?
And if so, how do you like it?

Also, I would like some recomendation's on electronic scales.

:wavey:

Electronic scales.. Dillon, RCBS 750...

As for ultrasonic brass cleaning.. this is probably all you've ever wanted to know about it, and more...

I used to use a sonic cleaner to clean my 45acp cases. Drying cases was a PIA. I like my cheap Frankfart Arsenal tumbler better.

I bought my ultrasonic cleaner originally for cleaning gun parts. It also works well for cleaning brass, but takes a lot longer to clean large quantities that tumblers are better suited for.

As for scales, I prefer a balance beam scale for a variety of reasons.

An organized loading room is a sign of a sick mind.

Looks like he has reloaded dozens of rounds in that room.

A sick and twisted mind. :supergrin:

Naaa, actually none when those pics were shot since it wasn't finished yet, and hadn't got to the LnL rubber band powder drop phase. :rofl:

Thanks for the replies so far guys.

I finally have been able to get a new bench to set up my press, and I've been trying to get the rest of the tool's I would like to have before I get started. I have used a sonic washer at work and thought it would make a nice adition to my home tool's.
For the most part I will be loading .218 bee for my revolver and it won't be in mass quantity, it's just not a cartridge I see to often on the shelves at the local shop's. Plus at a $1 a shot, it's not the type of ammo I want to burn through fast, allthough I love to shoot that little beast. So reloading seemed like a good option to me, and I've got time and now space to do it.

I want to get an electronic scale to try and keep the loads as consistant as possible. I just don't see that happening with a ballance scale, at least not as precise.(not for me anyway)

Keep the replies coming, and thanks again. :wavey:

Cobra, that compressor kicking on in that sound chamber below your bench would scare the beJesus out of me. I very much like the switched outlet idea. (I actually love building electrical circuits like that.)

Yeah, that little beast buzzes like hell. I could vibrate brass and blow air with it at the same time. :rofl: Realistically, it gets very little use... just for blowing out lint and crap from pistol innards.

A quality beam scale, will be just as accurate as an electronic scale. Electronic scales can drift, beam scales don't. Assuming you get a quality beam scale and a quality electronic scale, both will usually be accurate to .1 grain.

If you just want digital, that's fine, nothing wrong with that, but they will not be more precise than a beam scale.

my bench would mortify most people, but been using(and piling) for 30 years. When considering an electronic scale, if you are ever going to load for rifles using stick powder, consider a scale that mates with a powder dispenser(though it is less expensive to buy as a set). I never thought I would think one worth the money, but got a deal on one and it is great, much faster than using a trickler.I love it, and some of my rifles prefer a stick powder, but it is only worth it if you shoot a lot of rifles. Beams are OK, I use an RCBS1050 most of the time, but an electronic one is quicker to use, just zero it and go, and if old age is approaching, you wont have to flip your glasses to read the beam. It is a good idea to have some scale check weights, or if you know someone who has access to an analytical balance you can have them weigh a light and heavy bullet to use as a reference. Pharmacies often have a good scale, you could use coins, and tell them you need to check a powder scale, otherwise they might think you are weighing something funny.

Consistency, I have found over the years, has much to do with powder type, technique, etc. Your balance/scale is just going to weigh, unless you are weighing every charge a balance is not going to be that much slower.

Fairly normal, depending on the definition of normalcy.

Since I don't have your creative writing skills, I have to express my half-fast sense of humor pictorially (is that a word?).

My grammar ain't bad though. :tongueout:
