What case cleaning method do you use?

Just wondering what methods/media you all use and find effective. Curious also to see specifically what media most people like in their vibratory tumblers.

Also, what additives, polishes, concoctions, brews etc. do you add for best results with your chosen method?

Thanks

PS- I was gonna do this in the "Reloading" section but it wouldn't let me add a "Poll" ?? ...sorry...

STM all the way for me, (stainless pins in a rotary tumbler) and I ain't going back.

I have used the vibratory type tumblers for years with walnut media. Saying that I also tried the ultra sonic cleaners as well with some success. I now use STM and like Broz will never look back, takes less time than any other method I have used with much better results.

I wondered if that would be the one to jump to the lead.

STM for me as well. It gets the brass super clean. My buddy used to ask me to clean his brass for him after he saw how much nicer the STM rotary method worked than his vibratory tumbler full of walnut or corn cob.

Since I don't reload a huge amount of ammo I just use a cheap harbor freight rotary tumbler and SS media and it works great! I want to try some liquid polish additive but haven't yet.
