Medium Grain Sea Salt Question

I bought a big bag from Costco and want to use it at the table. Can I take any regular pepper mill and use it to grind the sea salt down, or do I need some special grinder? The grains are too big as is now.

A peppermill will do the job. One with an adjustable grinder may be better so you can get the salt to the size you prefer.

htc, i use a regular pepper grinder for my chunk sea salt and it works fine. i have matching wood grinders, a tubular one for the pepper, an hour glass like curved one for the salt. it helps to be able to tell them apart.
