Lyman 2500 Pro Magnum Auto Flo Tumbler
No where on the box or in the description does it mention that no media is included with this product (the tumbler I ordered previous to this one included media) and that it will be shipped separately from anything else you order. Very disappointing!

Lyman puts out a quality product, this Pro Mag Auto Flo Tumbler is no exception. The other review was poor because no media was included. Yep, no media included...says it on the box. So pick up a jug of media, the green is what I like, and get ready to clean some brass.
I set it up in about 5 minutes and loaded it up with about 220 .308 cases. Nice and clean in 2 hours... My brass was pretty tarnished. Set your catch bowl, not the actual term, and pull the plug. The tumbler will ahead most all the media into the bowl. Open her up and collect your brass.
I like the face I didn't need to buy a separator... But that's my personal preference.
I like the volume do this machine. It is pretty quiet considering you are tumbling brass... I tumble for about 2 hours and they clean up just as I like. The description shows you can clean 1,000 .380 shells... I post my 220 .308 and it would clean more.
Durability....? I have no idea... I have had mine for about 2 months...
The manual has a mini-reloading feel. It's pretty good, turn to the middle of the book to start.
