I mostly shoot at an outdoor range where each shooter has their own three sided berm pit. The floor is mostly gravel and even though the brass hogs go through there pretty often, there is usually a good bit of brass on the ground scattered through out the pit.

If I want to pick mine up, I can see them shining in the sun very easily. But I have to admit with the low prices I have found on 9mm brass lately, if it is a super hot day or rainy, I just leave it.

I pick up my .45, 10mm .38spl etc!

I wash my pick-up brass in a bucket using a garden hose with a jet nozzle,  then sort by headstamp and let dry.  Washing extends my media life and prevents having some micro-stone particles from my range hit the press.

BRY 400 vibratory tumbler, 300-400 9mm cases at a time (no more-no less) ,  Corn cob with a skosh of walnut media and New Finish for 4 hours makes mine look very newish. :)
