Yep, if you are using a dry media such as walnut or corn then decap after cleaning.

One of the cool things about the wet method is media separation is a lot easier :-)
Over many years (since the 70's) anytime I got ctg cases wet I was not happy in the end :-). Good thing I do not shoot BPCR :-).
America NO LONGER held hostage by ZERO the lying dictator.......:-)

a note on casting , casting is going to be as simple or complicated as you make it , that also goes for expense , ive got about $75 in my simple set up not including molds , a stainless steel pot a coleman camp stove lead thermometor heavy leather gloves , face sheild and a ladle , molds can run anywhere from about $25 for lee up to $200 for custom molds , lubing can take time if you forego a lubrisizer as i did , i pan lube and shoot as cast , but lee push threw sizers are cheap and work well and no nose punches needed if you need to size
