    I've wiped them off with a rag before, but never shined them.

    Do you shine your pocket change also ?
    Some people do.
    It's OK with me.

    You have too much time on your hands.

    Or...just shoot what you have, buy new SD ammo.

    Whenever my carry rounds get to looking like they might need a polishing, I empty the magazine and put them in the shoot box. Next time at the range, they get shot.

    Years ago when most of the casings were not nickle plated I would shine the twelve in the beltloops on my duty belt. Today with nickle plated casings on the defensive ammo I use I wipe them off with a silicone cloth before loading them in the magazines of my carry guns. Yeah I am a Type A.

    You might as well go down into the basement and put a nice shine on the copper plumbing while you have that can of Never-Dull out and handy.

    I have on occasion, cleaned some Wolf ammo that was pretty 'cheap and dirty'...cleaning helped.

    I have to admit I've done it, but I use Simichrome. Polished/clean brass feeds better.
