    Best brass case polish?

    What’s everyone’s favorite polish to add to your media to get the shiniest case

    I use Nu finish, too. I used Brasso before but stopped when I found out it contains ammonia and that can weaken brass.

    Rooster Labs - Rooster Bright Brass Cartridge Case Polish
    ryan@roosterlab.us
    Made for treating and rejuvenating polishing media .
    I got my can from Midway USA , follow the directions and do not add too much to dry media ...
    Too much liquid makes dry media damp and clumpy and it doesn't work as well .

    I started out using New finish. Then i used Mothers chrome polish. Now im using Turtle wax brand of chrome polish. I can not tell any difference how they work. They all do fine. The Turtle wax brand is the cheapest per ounce at Walmart.

    You need to polish or they will tarnish.

    I have been wet tumbling with SS pins for about 3 years now. I've had zero problems with cases tarnishing. I use a small amount of auto wash & wax in the final rinse though. My cases never got this clean when I used either walnut or corn cob media and the tumble time with SS pins is shorter.

    With that litte bit of auto wash and wax is all you need.

    NuFinish. Dillon before that and Flitz before that. Most of them work fine.

    Just remember to rinse ALL the lemishine/citric acid off as soon as it quits tumbling or you could get interesting colored brass
