    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??

    i have tumbled moly bullets to remove the moly, worked good enough. 2cups vinegar 1 tsp salt to a quart of water, old brass cleaning method

    never tried it but should work
