Re: Cleaning brass - inside case still dirty??

I have seen the stainless pins in a Thumlers Tumbler, his media is the pins, one gallon water 2 tablespoons dishwashing liquid and two tablespoons cream of tarter. This brass looks better than new including the primer pocket and flash hole. There is a dealer for the tumbler on this site an maybe he will dial in. Gonna get me one as soon as I find a buyer for all the media and Lyman viberator I have know. Gettin to much stuff in loading room.

    Hornady and Lyman also tout their ultrasonic cleaners for cleaning gun parts. Will it get the carbon off an AR bolt or bolt carrier?

    Try Birchwood Casey case cleaner. It is inexpensive, you dilute the solution per the directions and it goes a long way.

    I love how the ultrasonics clean the inside and especially the primer pockets. Not that hard to use I can get about 100 308s in the Lyman. I have not been able to get that media/tumbler polish though. Oh, yes buy the parts cleaner and through your dies in occassionaly, simple.
