This is true, there are pics of shinier brass. My focus was the fact that my tumbler ran for 12+ hours and didn't die or overheat. Someone was talking crap about RCBS product quality and I thought this might shut them up.

Not sure why you mentioned trimming the cases...I didn't!

When I tumble my brass, I get a spike in my electricity bill. That's why I only tumble 90 mins per batch, clean, but not shiny.
Let's not go there. The day prior to asinine move, the wife was happy as all hell that we had managed to reduce our electricity consumption, thus dropping our bill dramatically.
