    Default Unintended experiment

    I soak my used range brass in vinegar & water for a day before tumbling. When I drained a batch there were a couple of my un-fired handloads in the mix. So I thought why not fire them next time. A week later they fired just fine. May try it again for the heck of it.

    Good to know that the old advice "to keep your powder dry" does not necessarily apply anymore.

    If it were me, I would have caught the unfired handloads before soaking them in the cleaning solution because I decap all of my brass before soaking. Soaking decapped brass tends to soften the primer residue in the primer pockets making it easier to clean..
