shining old bullets

i came across some 15yr old tarnished bullets,they were not in their box,but in a plastic"organizer".there are 200 168gr .30cal sierra matchkings,i weighed each to be sure, just tarnished.i may use a liquid case cleaner and soak for a little while,then tumble??? any ideas? how can i clean these up to shoot in a new lilja barrel??
