    After you polish them vacuum seal them using a vacuum food sealing bag and machine.

    tarnished brass

    Thanks
    I had thought about a vacuum sealer and that it might/should work.
    Will give it a try.
    Thx

    After I polish my brass, I only touch them with rubber gloves on. It doesn't matter if they are vacum sealed because the oil from your hands is what starts the tarnishing. It's a pain and the wife thinks I'm a mad scientest but it works.

    Shiny brass

    My wife thinks I am much worse than a mad scientist....I am supposed to keep the forum clean.
    I just like for my handloads to shoot perfect and look perfect.
    Thanks for the suggestion.
