Default Case tumbler, corn cob or walnut media?

I am new to reloading and am going to buy a case tumbler, any suggestion on which is best (RCBS?), and also which is a better media, corn cob or walnut shells or anything else? thanks

Most of the tumblers out now are the vibration rather than the old round and round tumblers. The new ones are faster. I've got a Lyman but most every one has their own brand...probably all made by same outfit. I would just get the best deal on one from reputable company. And I think I'd start with some treated walnut. Treated corn cob works good too, but doesn't last as well IMHO.

Check out the Lyman 1200 auto flow. I really like the one I have. All you do when your done cleaning your cases is put a pan under the exhaust port and pull the plug and let it run. It automatically seperates the cases from the media. I like the walnut media with Lyman's Turbo Brite brass polish added to it. Buy the walnut media at Pet Smart or any other pet stores it is a lot cheaper.

I use the RCBS with corn cob media mixed with a teaspoon of jewelers rouge.

I use Lymans and get hundreds of cycles with their TufNut media without changing or adding stuff.
