Three lake City brass in a tub! Hey all you Military brass guys. Here is what I just tried. I have 1000s of shells to clean. I don't like media. Remember even your brass needs to be tactical To shiney is not good. I bought this Iosso Case cleaner gizmo. Doe's a so-so job. At $7 a quart you can do about 300-500 shells. When Kate and I went to the range last weekend (opened and closed it I talked to a guy who was firng a shot cleaning his rifle over and over again. Using this copper stripper by Shooter's Choice. He kept getting massive copper out of his barrel. Well I thought My M1 has a few 100 shots thru it, maybe It needs to be stripped. So I got some this weekend. Came home, used it, notta! The bore in my Garand was clean. Waste of $8. Well not really I will use it on my new rifle when i break it in. So today I started cleaning a few shells with it (see where this is going). It did a right nice job. Better than the Iosso case cleaner (dont buy it folks) Being that the Shooters choice smells real bad. I read the label. 5% ammonia and petroleum distillates and water. I go to my household cleaning stuff. What do I find Top shelf Ammoina with lemon. A gallon for $1.79 Guess whats in it Don't smell no better :-( So while some of you are beating the stuck media out of your shells, I'll be dippin', rinsin' and setting them up to dry For any of you new guys, Always deprime, and size your brass before you clean them. That way if you find bad ones, they are a few less to clean. You also need to get the sizing lube off.
