CocoBolo Posted May 30, 2013 Share Posted May 30, 2013 Recently I went on a beng loading .223. The first 1,000 were not too bad as only an occasional flash hole was plugged with corn, and along with the preload drop check I would push it out. As the corn became more Lubed from cleaning lube off of the sized cases it became every case and then the next batch became the whole darn case filled with corn, had to dig it out with a piece of stainless steel wire. So I come to Benos I read everthing I can find on the subject. First up was ultra sonic, I find some videos on U-Tube, after watching those I calculated that I would be too darn old to shoot by the time I cleaned 5,000 cases. Then I read about proponol aka Rubbing Alchol, make a little trip down to the store stock up. I tried it, after washing in Alchol well they felt stickey. Since I had corn all over the shop any time I set a case down a pice of corn stuck to it, then jammed up the drop check. Glass beads, nope, the part about wearing the mask scared me. I decied to try Walnut, after reading a post about the fine walnut from harbor freight not clogging the flash holes. I have 2,000 cases washed in alchol that are stickey on the outside who know what on the inside, and some of those had been in the corn and had spots on them that was like chunks of bubble gum, the grey kind. Into the tumbler they went. The wife wanted me to go matress shopping, so we did and it took as you can guess all afternoon, when I returned looked in the tumbler they were as clean as new and shiny, so into the media seperator they went, they came out with nothing in them, no clogged flash holes. So $25 for 25# is about as good as it gets and worth every penny. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
