I use an ultrasonic cleaner filled will distilled water and Lyman's brass cleaner. Two 8 min cycles with the heater on. Cleans the primer pocket, inside, and outside the case really good. Hit it with some 0000 steel wool after trimming and it's nice and shiny.

Was that his question?

pretty good! that is why i posted what i did. i don't clean my brass so they look nice and pretty. it is done from purely practical reasons. clean cases are easier to see any defects and are easier on your equipment. i don't tumble some of mine everytime they have been shot, but at least every third time they are shot they get tumbled.

Everyone who's been a soldier, especially in the Army loves shiny brass!

I use a couple of capfulls of the Lyman brass polish with my crushed walnut shell media in my rotary tumbler. Shines like new.

P.S.: Don't use products like Brasso because of the ammonia in it will make the brass brittle.

Other than for the reasons axxe mentioned, clean shiny brass just looks nice.
