At the range

When at the range what do you soak your spent cartridges in if any thing?
I'm shooting a 45-70 with true blackpowder

Thanks

I don't do anything until at home or back at camp. Then deprime toss them into a coffee can, with a dash of Oxyclean fill with warm water. Put the lid on and shake them a bit. Rinse and off to the tumbler they go.

After decaping, soaking, shaking and tumbling, before resizing, does anyone do anything to ensure the inside of the cartridge-neck is sparkly clean also? Or whatever comes off during the tumbling process is ok?

Jim using the ceramic media in the tumbler with a dash of dish soap and some limishine, the inside of the case necks come out nice and clean. I think the secret is to not use to much media.
