Can/do you guys tumble plastic shotgun shells when reloading them?

If so, I'm curious how the plastic holds up.

NOT a reloader, this is just one of those things that keep me awake at night (FWIW, I did try an OSA search first).

Thanks. :drunk2:

I never have. I'd be worried about separation from the hull to brass?

If I had some of the quality AA hulls that had a little tarnish, I'd hit it with some steel wool, but that was the extent of cleaning them.

I wouldn't because the inside base sometimes contains a hard pressed cardboard as a base wad lifting the powder up to the level of the primer. The moisture would swell it and ruin the shell. The powder doesn't sit on the brass like metal shells for bullets
