Brass that’s too clean

Post by lablover on 5/12/2018, 4:03 pm

First topic message reminder :

I wet tumble with stainless media, yea, it gets brass super clean.  The problem I’m seeing is that th brass likes to now grind on my case flare die in my Dillon.  I have a mr bullet feeder powder funnel and I love it but I notice it likes to really rub hard.  I put a tiny bit of lube on the case mouth with a q tip and all was fine.  No way I’m doing this with every case.  Anyone ever run your ultra clean brass thru corn cob with some type of polish to slicker them up?  I was thinking some mother’s polish or some nu finish car wax in the corn cob then run my cases thru the tumbler or should I say my vibrate dry tumbler

Thanks

Joe

Hello,

With all these "non-gun" solutions, i. e. car wash/wax, dish soaps, dryer sheets, etcetera, has anyone ever had any problems with contaminated primers or powders?

Nope, not once. Wet tumble here with car wash and citric acid (lemishine). Tumble them, rinse, dry, and good to go.

Even shot Hornady One-Shot into multiple primed cases to see if there would be any problem- none found.

Starline will radius the powder through expander for your Dillon.  Even with brand new brass it doesn’t stick.  However, if your shooting a lot of lead the better option IMO is to pick up one of Steve Bathje expanders.  They’re not on his eBay store but you can email him.
