Re: Cleaning brass - inside case still dirty??

I have the Hornady sonic cleaner and it does a great job for small batches. I clean about 50 a time and rise and use a fan to hurry the process of drying. I guess if i had my choice i would use this the tumbler did nothing for me.

    There is the review of my STM method on the home page now. Lots of guys are loving the stainless tumbling media. Cleans inside, out, primers pockets, with no more media stuck in the flash hole.

    I bought the ultrasonic cleaner from Harbor Freight that Hornady copied or re-brands and use Hornady's cleaning fluid. It probably saved me $30 to cut out the Hornady name.

    I only clean and load in small batches. I don't get to shoot every day. So, I don't care if it takes a while for brass to dry. But, I like everything to be pristine. It's the best I've come across to that end.

    Thanks for everyone's replies and comments, they are appreciated.
    I just may start looking at the stainless pin tumbling media as it looks promising from the posts and replies here.
