Flybuster , what's in the Citranox ? I'm guessing no Ammonia which workhardens Brass . Maybe Citric Acid ??? If so , any idea how it affects Brass ???


[/ QUOTE ]Phospate-free Citranox® contains a blend of organic acids, anionic and non-ionic surfactants and alkanolamines,what-ever that means.

I tried a low power ultrasonic cleaner, and I was very disappointed. It cost about $125 and after several hours, the cases still had a lot of crud in the primer pockets.

I read the article on 6mmBR:

http://www.6mmbr.com/ultrasonic.html

And they throw some light on the chemicals that make the process work, so when I have the loose change to get a larger ultrasonic cleaner, I'll give it a try again.

Fly... if you are allergic to the walnut stuff, have you tried corn cob? I use it in my large Dillon and the cases look like they just came off a jewelers wheel.

Hey Paul, I think you got a bum US unit [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] Mine cost like 50$ shipped and is what I ran the tests with for the article...

Citranox works OK...haven't played with it a lot yet, but have tried it. Also working with another citric acid cleaner soon...

I want to shoot it... but for these last two years, I have been fighting a custody thing in court for my son, and I'm doing it myself (I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy).

I can't find enuff time to shoot it now, but the case is supposed to be over this summer. I spend 40 hours a week on this crapola - I'll never be able to do jury duty again. If the public knew how the courts worked from the insides, they would burn them to the ground and start over again.
