Default Lyman tufnut media

G'day fellas

The only way I new to clean rifle brass was to use 0000 steel wool and my cases would come out sparkling clean..... I figured there had to be an easier way so I decided to buy a vibrating tumbler which came with lyman tuf nut media....it done a fantastic job of cleaning the brass but left the inside of the brass with a red coating of some sort...I was wondering will this red coating affect the powder and how the hell do I get rid of this problem as everything is coated in red...cleaning the outside of the cases ain't no probs it's just the inside that concerns me,there has to be a better media....any advice will be appreciated.....cheers

The red is a rouge that is added to the Tufnut media. If you mix it 50/50 with clean walnut or cob media, it won't be as bad. Or just switch to 100% clean media.

Most think it either needs to be wiped off or tumbled a second time to remove the rouge, depending on whether you want to invest time yourself in removing it when you inspect or wish the tumbler to do it automatically. Either way, you should get down to clean brass.

Just go to the nearest pet store and buy some lizard litter. Its just ground up walnut shells and is cheaper than the stuff made for a case polisher. You can add a little liquid polisher if you think you need it.
