Re: Cleaning Lube on Resized Brass

I tumble again in untreated corn cob. I keep one bucket of untreated corn cob specifically for this.


I type this, as I just finished tumbling 1800 223 LC 1x fired (crimped primers) brass. So, after I size and deprime, swage primer crimp, will trim to length, inside/outside case mouth bevel, and perform the same magic on the primer hole.....then.....tumble in clean corn cob.

I resize first, then clean (in an ultrasonic).

Ever seen a bowler shake his ball in that towel thingy?

I have an old bath towel, I fog it with some brake cleaner and then shake a pile of brass in there like a bowler shakes his ball.

Cleans em right up.
Not only does it get the case lube off, but it degrease them so they are easier to grip when I run them through the case prep station.

I size my cases then put them in my vibe-tumbler with Lyman treated corn cob. I have to inspect and clean out the primer pockets and flash hole but that is no big problem I use one of the small screw drivers used for glasses to clean out the pockets and holes.

I switched from case lube to Hornady One-Shot lube. It seems to lube better -full length resizer die doesn't take as much pressure. It cleans off easily with a paper towel. Doesn't leave a residue like the case lube and is easier to clean off.

Be careful with the "one stuck" it has caused me and many others down time with a stuck case. I went running back to the RCB lube pad.

As for cleaning off lube I generally use a towel and hand clean, but if I am running a large batch they go back in the Stainless media tumbler for a few minutes and come out like new again.
