I clean the first time with the shot primers still in them (I don't like putting dirty brass in my dies) then deprime and FLS them and clean again to remove any lubricant. I use a vibrating Lyman 1200 Turbo Pro with auto flo, walnut shell media with Lyman's Turbo Brite Brass polish added to the walnut media, about 3 caps per 1 pound media. I wipe down every case when the tumbling is done and they look like brand new shiny brass. I tried the corncob but it is a pain to get out of the cases and out of the primer pockets.

I use a ceramic media that cleans the inside, outside and primer pocket. When done the cases are hard to tell from new.
First decap with the Lyman universal decap die then I use a Thumbler's Tumbler and enough water to just barely cover the media in it and a teaspoon of polishing liquid then throw in the cases. Tumble for a couple of hours or until I remember that it's running and rinse in fresh hot water, dry in the convection oven at 150F for an hour and done.
