What's the cheapest I can get into stainless steel tumbling?
 
I don't want cheap which will break or won't really do the job...

So... what's the cheapest I can tumble that way?

$50 for 5# of stainless steel pins and $100 for a Harbor Freight small cement mixer. Throw in some LemiShine a gallon of water and a bit of Dawn dish detergent for a thousand pistol or 250 rifle cases, then tumble for 30 - 40 minutes. Decap first if you want clean primer pockets. Use a small part pickup magnet to glean the pins out of the brass. Works great.

I made a thread on this very topic. Do a search. I would post it but I am on my phone.

I think replies # 1, 2 and 3 pretty much nailed it in the head.
