I don't know about ruining a barrel, but I've broken a depriming pin or two on a pin wedged sideways in a case.
I got the Frankford magnet mentioned above, and run it through the brass after I tumble the brass through my hands as I'm rinsing it. I feel a little like Scrooge McDuck playing with his money, but it works!

It's pretty easy to deal with the pins, but you have to think a bit out of the box - if you've ever made cheese, you already know what I'm thinking of. After you've drained and rinsed the brass, pour the water with the pins through a piece of fine muslin. I just lay the fabric on top of the brass sorter (once it's empty). Rinse water goes through, pins stay on top. Gather up the fabric and twist to get rid of the excess water, and you're done.mr surveyor wrote:PBR wrote:have you tried smaller batch / less media -- just thought but new one might not handle as much correctly -- i switched to wet tumbling and havent looked back, comes out super clean inside and out, primer pockets and all, great shine too -- i have the frankford wet tumble
That would be my second, and most likely next option. Just not sure I want to deal with keeping track of the pins.
