    i just leave them till to go for a few hrs say 4hrs feller if they are still dirty walk away, i use a ultrasonic as well but i tend to use the corn and t'cut mix to polish them up. and the ultra to remove any unwanted dust and bits inside the case's . i spin my case's up and brush the inside neck after both types of cleaning just cos i like shiny things

    I have to admit I do like them shiney too! quite often I will remove a round from my magazine if it's been in there too long and looks all dull and change it for a new shiney one and shoot the dull one at a target...

    I got a friend that does target shooting that accidentally forgot and left some .308 cases tumbling in his summer house for 3 weeks!!
    Other than having to wear sunglasses when reloading them, there seemed to be no other adverse effects!

    I had a ledge break away from under my motorcycle in the back country. I tumbled about 75 feet down hill. Took about 5 seconds, mebbe? That's all the tumbling I ever do. The fetish for shiney cases? Never. Clean cases? Always. ~Muir

    Harley's suck! Owned on decades ago and hated it.

    Being 2 wheel drive, this bike must be driven, not ridden, so I suspect most pasty, under-fed, frail Brits wouldn't be able to travel far in the mountains without a lengthy rest. ~Muir
