Lyman 2500 Pro Magnum and corn cob media. If I was starting from new I would buy a Thumblers Tumbler rotary and use stainless media.
Nothing wrong with the one I got now but I've seen the other in action, and like it.

^ that I believe.. I know mine is a lyman it has 2 bowls which is useful becuase I use the small one since I dont reload a lot in one sitting.

It works well for me!

if you want to shell out a bunch of money check out stainless tumbling media.. that will make even the oldest rustiest brass look brand new.. plus it cleans the primer pockets which is nice

Got a cheap one from SG, using cc media, and, pistacchio hulls. Works fine for my application. I have so many pistacchio addicts here at work, I am overwhelmed with the hulls, so I put them to good use now. ;\)

I use ceramic in my RCBS vibrating tumbler, I can do 100 rds of .40-65 that are real nasty from using black powder, they come out shiny as new including the primer pocket

the ceramic can not be used with bottleneck cases as the media will work itself inside and lodge up creating a nightmare.

I have heard great reviews about the stainless from the guys out west

I have a lyman 1200. Using corn cob media. Does a great job. As others have stated the stainless tumblers do great. But for my application I'm not sure it's worth the extra money.

All of the above is good advice. I now have a stainless and it is great, but all the above is good also

Thumler Tumbler and stainless pin media. Aside from the awesome cleaning I really like how quiet it runs.

While I agree walnut does a real good job of shining the cases, it always left a dust inside the cases. I don't know if it hurt anything I just didn't like it.
