Me too, works great!I use crushed walnut shell media bought at PetSmart. It lasts quite a long time.
To keep the dust down, I throw in a 2 inch wide strip of Laundry Softener sheet with each batch. Toss the dirty strip when I separate the media from the shiny brass.
I've used the hand held Lyman Large primer pocket cleaner for years on pistol brass. Never had an issue at all. Recently, I got one of the primer pocket brush sets from RCBS. As long as it's not really old crudded up brass, they seem to work just as well. But for large primer pockets I usually just grab the Lyman tool.Hi Duane, I'm the same as you. I always use the primer pocket tool on rifle brass. When I started this pistol reloading thing, I started with some .44 mag brass. With the large primer pocket tool, I found I was taking off alot of brass, going in pretty deep into the pocket. I stopped using it right away and did some reading on the Net. In a couple of places, I found it stated that at least the large primer pocket tool was intended for rifle brass. Thus far, I haven't used the small primer pocket tool on any of my .38 spl or .357 mag brass. The primer pocket brushes that RCBS sells have gotten pretty rotten reviews on Midway, but I've never used them myself. What say you, Duane?
