I like shiney too. For too many years I couldn't figure out how to clean inside cases, until I found G&G. I was given a half case of 45 ACP brass that had been sitting up for God knows how many years. My main reason for cleaning inside of cases is for clean setting for bullet into case. These 45s are in really grungy condition. I've run them in a dry tumbler all night with corn cobb media and it cleans them but not to my satisfaction. I also have walnut but its my understanding walnut is used for really dirty brass. I've used them both.I am on the fence.
My dry tumble works good
But i like shiny too.
But then i think of the money to switch
Then i like shiny
I finally broke down and bought a wet pin tumbler. today I tumbled some 300 Blk & 10mm. it really works good and is quicker than dry tumbling. no pins got stuck in any flash holes. I de-primed my brass before tumbling because I was having problems with seating the primers all the way in my 10mm loads. when I shot them in my striker fired XDm I would get light primer strikes on the high primers. never had any problem before with other pistols. before I got the wet tumbler, I cleaned a bunch of the 10mm brass's primer pockets and that solved the problem. so I decided to get the wet tumbler and clean all my primer pockets. I re-sized & belled the case mouths after tumbling.so far I am still useing the dry tumbler.
