Search function gets alot of results.

But, here you go: Brass Cleaning Using Stainless Tumbling Media System-Review

I should also add that STM does the best job of cleaning brass. Takes a bit more time when you include drying, but if you like clean brass there is no better way.

Re: stainless steel media

If you buy the proper tumbler and media you will never go back to the 1/2 azz cleaning of corn cob, walnut shells, or ultrasonic. I have all those dusty machines to prove it.

Stainless media is the way to go and it cleans in 4 hrs. I recommend buying from STM , that is where I got mine.

Re: stainless steel media

+1 on using SS media. I cleaned brass for 25 years with corn cob media but once I got the SS and (as mentioned above) the "right" tumbler for it, nothing compares or does a better job. It will be clean as new inside and out primer pockets and all.

And I 2nd the fact to buy from STM. Great people to work with.

Re: stainless steel media

All I can say is WOW does it work GOOD! I ran some once fired brass thru for 3 hours it looks better than new, inside and out and primer pockets. Then I found the worst looking brass I have, it has sat in my garage for 20 years and was very tarnished, I ran it for 4 hours and they look like new

I got the media from STM but I cheaped out and got the tumbler at Harbor Freight
