    Hi Jos
    You can use a tumbler but more important once you start to use moly coated bullets it can be awkward to remove from the rifling . i have known some people use fairy liquid .As a target shooter i stay clear of them .

    I got 98% removed with the sonic cleaner.
    Just gave them a rub with kitchen roll to remove the other 2%
    They never came up as shiny as the non moly coated BULLETS though

    Another option would be to sell them or give them away? Even after cleaning they won't be exactly the same as the suppliers bare bullets.
