Thread: Case cleaning

  1. #1

    Case cleaning

    Is it possible to clean cases with CILLIT BANG cleaner or will it affect the brass in anyway?
    Your feedback is greatly appreciated

    I would say that Cillit is extremely damaging to your brass, if you really want to know, sacrifice one case!

    Thanks for that I'll give it a go and see what happens

    If you observe a pinkish hue starting, then you have an acidic reaction, blueish or green you are having an alkaline reaction.

    Can you recommend any other way of cleaning them without using a Tumbler or a sonic cleaner?

    when I first started off reloading I got a lee case holder for a cordless drill and used very fine wire wool, worked a treat!

    If you purchase the case trimmer, you can also trim the cases whilst mounted on the drill 8)

    You might be better substituting fine grade Scotchbrite for the steel wool, less chance of impregnating your brass & chamber with iron, you can get a rust bloom with wire wool in very wet weather.
