    I use whats called "reptile bedding" for vibe cleaning of my casings....and they certainly come out all nice and clean....BUT....I used to use in addition a "chemical" with it that gave them the "buffed"...."polished" appearance. Of course I ran out of the stuff and cant remember what it was. Thick white creamy stuff?? But Ibe heard that other products work just as well...soooooo

    What do you use..if anything...and how do you like it.

    As I said mine come out perfectly clean...but not with any "new brass shine" that I used to get.

    Thanks

    There are several good brass polishes out there. Just don't use one with ammonia in it.
    It makes brass brittle. Any of the reloading suppliers carry at least one brand. What I
    don't like are the treated walnut medias. They seem to make a mess of everything.
    ( My last bottle has been Frankford Arsenal. No difference from what I had before it.)
