    I would try harbor freight walnut hulls, either fine or larger. There are 20% off coupons all over the place. Link to fine walnut hulls.

    I was always told that anything with ammonia does not mix well with brass. I still use corn cob, Turtle wax liquid, some liquid chrome polish, and a dollop of citric acid on my 9mm, 9x18, and .38sp. brass. Just switch the vibratory tumbler on and let it run till everything is shiny. Common knowledge is to use walnut on dirty stuff, coarse corn cob on cleaner stuff, and fine corn cob to get a high polish. I just use electricity and time with old corn cob and that mix that I add to it each time I tumble brass. It works for me. YMMV.

    And it leaves the brass slippery enough I don't need any case lube for the sizer but not greasy so as to attract dirt or clump powder.

    Iíve used walnut hulls or corn cob media for many years and with the addition of a little Lyman Turbo Case Brite cases come out nice and shiny.

    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.

    I take mine out and roll em around on a towel. Donít let them sit wet. I am very glad I went to the wet tumbler.
