Very true, however some people (myself included) want some of their brass to be shiny. I can't think of any good reason for shiny brass except "pride".Shiny brass doesn't shoot any better than dull brass.
whats the difference in using stainless still pins vs. corncob. vs walnut media.I use a rotating tumbler with SS pins, Dawn, Lemi-Shine to clean the resized and trimmed brass. I found it cleans better than ultrasonic cleaners. Also, if I have a mixture of nickel plated and regular brass I don't have to worry about the nickel turning colors.
I rinse the tumbled brass in hot water then after the brass drys, I put it in a vibrating tumbler with corn cob media with jewlers rouge.
I just happened to have some steel wool from a birchwood casey gun cleaning cleaning and refinish kit.The main difference is in the level of cleaning. The process I posted earlier cleans everything on the brass. If you deprived the brass before tumbling, the primer pockets as well.
Because SS pins are harder than brass, they last forever and are self cleaning.
I can't say from personal experience what will happen about the pink brass. If the SS pins don't work, at least you won't have problems identifying your brass at the range.
If you get any grief over the brass, just tell 'em it's a special anti zombie coating and walk away.
Well he followed a design that is on several forums. He is in the HVAC business so had most of the stuff left over from various jobs.care to elaborate? that looks nifty. do you have a build sheet? specification sheet?
