Re: Almost too embarrassed to ask!!

Hey 7rum

Was reading "Handloading for Competition" and there was a few lines in there how the Rouge in treated media can cause issues in the barrel over time. I guess the roughe gets inside the case and stays there then when fired, residual "rouge" gets deposited in the barrels and acts as an abrasive over time. So, I'm not so sure how true this is but I have read it in several places (don't even remember) so I figured beter safe than sorry.

The book also mentions just because a case is pretty and shiny does not mean it's clean. Goes into detail how "wet cleaners" just suck etc etc etc.

After cleaning a batch with the plain corn cob, I noticed cases did not have that super shine on them..But felt?? very clean. He also mentions the rouge in treated media junking up dies etc. Kind of makes sense I guess.

It's kind of too bad too because I always had a woodie over very shiny cases. Must of been 10 years in the corps and this thing for shiny brass.

I think GG recently posted that he wipes his brass down w/ steel wool then throws them in the corncob over night. He handles them with latex gloves on so the oils from his fingers don't tarnish them as they sit on the shelf.

I must say his MOAG rounds were absolutely picture perfect.

Thanks lab! I don't use treated media I add a little polish that came with my setup from time to time but was thinking of buying some treated media because mine is getting dirty.

Can I ask what type of polish you use. I was thinking of trying sinclairs rooster bright. Not sure that would cause any harm

Lab I just saw your post. I use the frankford arsenal polish that came with my tumbler and media. It sells by itself also and is not suppose to harm cases. You add two tablespoons to each pound of untreated media ( I think ). It works good my cases come out bright and shiney and it has a citrus scent to it instead of a cleaner smell.

Which makes it especially tasty on chocolate cake frosting or ice cream.







Don't try this at home.
