    oh, and dude. look for that receipt. Those FA tumblers are hit or miss. I had one die in the first 30 days. I have also read a lot of other people with the similar experience on the gun boards.

    noted, will keep receipt and box. thanks.

    so y first tumble just finished, so as im inspecting the casings, what should i be looking for. im holding 3 in my hand right now. one has a slightly bent lip [can a die fix that or is it trash]. one is nice and shiny [minus some slight powder burn on the tip]. and the 3rd has a tiny dimple from being ejected.

    i know im to look for cracks, but will the little dimples cause a problem...i think like 3/4 the brass we shot out of my friend M&P all have that little dimple.
