Re: Cleaning loaded cases

If a loaded cartridge primer is struck hard enough, yer in big do-do. Clean them by hand with any solvent mentioned above. Or use 0000 steel wool. Sinclair sells something called "Crazy cloth" that benchrest shooters use.

Re: Cleaning loaded cases

I clean my cases in vibrating case cleaner after sizing. Then after loading I put on Yellow jersey gloves from hardware store and wipe them off, makes gloves Green where rubbed then into box with out a finger touching them & they are bright & shiny no finger prints.

I too use a 550 for my AR loads, and just a guick wipe before they go into the ammo box works for me. I don't get too agressive as I load moly bullets.

Re: Cleaning loaded cases

I have a tumbler and vibrator type of cleaner, not impressed with either. I use a Lee zip trim and a green scotch pad to clean my cases. Takes about 5 seconds for each case. This may be a good idea for your loaded cases.
Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.

The people trying to say the 2nd Amendment is outdated are probably the same folks that would say the same thing about the Bible.
