After you polish them vacuum seal them using a vacuum food sealing bag and machine.

tarnished brass

Thanks
I had thought about a vacuum sealer and that it might/should work.
Will give it a try.
Thx
Ken

After I polish my brass, I only touch them with rubber gloves on. It doesn't matter if they are vacum sealed because the oil from your hands is what starts the tarnishing. It's a pain and the wife thinks I'm a mad scientest but it works.

Shiny brass

My wife thinks I am much worse than a mad scientist....I am supposed to keep the forum clean.
I just like for my handloads to shoot perfect and look perfect.
Thanks for the suggestion.
Ken
