The pressures will not be consistent. The recipe for the load you are using calls for certain powders with certain grains. If you break down the grains then you throw off the whole thing.

1) Manufacturers tumble loaded rounds.

2) Look online, there is a report of someone who forgot, and tumbled loaded rounds for over 24 hours. They pulled so rounds and there was no degradation. They fired some rounds, and no change in velocity.

3) Think about it, many powders we use are made in Australia. So they load them on a ship, which pitches and rolls across the Pacific, then onto trucks to the plant to fill the containers. And then on a truck to the shop. And Military ammo, flies around the world on C-130 with high vibration for MANY hours.

There are experiments where rounds were tumbled for hundreds of hours! 20 minutes in your tumbler to get the lube off ain't going to hurt a thing.

Tumbling loaded rounds doesn't hurt a thing.

Tumbled countless rounds of dirty surplus 8mm Mauser and 30-06.

Thanks. I've been shooting S&W K series target revolvers and 22LR target rifles for many decades. Obviously 22LR is an off the shelf search that led to Fiocchi 320 S.M. for Kimber 82G and Federal Target for the K22. The K38 has worked very well with match ammo from a variety of suppliers. Now a Remington 700 in 223 has entered my collection, someday I'll tell my wife. I've been told it is unlikely a store bought match ammo will work as well as I'd like (smaller than 1/2" groups at 100 yards) so I've been looking into reloading and was quite confused until reading this thread and the other on the types of presses with their advantages/disadvantages. Thank you very much.

No problem. People asked, I had free time, and I genuinely like to help people.
