Re: My View of Stainless Media Cleaning

Browninglover1 PMed me about doing a batch of RC car parts for him. I'm thinking he might be on to some other applications for SS tumbling.
I gathered up a bunch of nasty spent cases at the Mantua range just to see what it would do to steel, old brass and aluminum.

Here's a handfull of old brass.

Primer pockets.

That's some pretty nasty water!

Check that out! I'm impressed!
