Interestingly, I borrowed a friend's Hornady Ultrasonci cleaner for a try before buy and it did nothing (IMO) to my cases that I could see. So I didn't buy one.
I'm still using cob because I have a lot (I bought a 10 pound bag at Wallyworld on the cheap) and I add a dab or two of Dupont fine rubbing compound for polish, much cheaper than the gun store stuff.
I tend to wash the cases in the vibrating tumbler with some water and dish soap after tumbling in cob to get the inside clean. At some point I'll probably ger the stainless rods too but I'll be on the lookout for a Thumlers Tumbler at garage sales or do the 5 gallon pail build beforehand.
