If you're asking for something to remove the powder burns and carbon deposits from the outside of the case neck and shoulder area, I use KG-1 from KG Products line of gun cleaning solutions.
Never tried CRC 5.56 so no way to compare. KG-1 is a low odor low toxicity product that removes the carbon deposits quickly with relatively little fuss prior to resizing the fired casings.
