Re: High volume OUTSIDE case neck cleaning?

I thought this thread was about the outside neck cleaning??? LOL...why I emphasized the outside so it would help others if they searched this.

Re: High volume OUTSIDE case neck cleaning?

I have found my solution no pun intended. Scalding hot water with a LOT of Dawn dish soap. I soak the casings for 24hrs in the water and soap, and mix them up every so often. Fully rinse and let dry overnight..if I am in a hurry I put them in the oven at 150 degrees for 30 minutes. Running them in vibratory cleaner with the same media for the same amount of time.

SPOTLESS FOR 99.9% OF THE CASINGS FOR THE ENTIRE OUTSIDE OF THE CASE.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. Helpful as always.
