Gentleman,what is the best media to use in the tumbler to polish the brass?I use the corncob mix and it cleans brass ok but not polishes.
Thanks
Paul

Throw a few "glugs" of non-ammonia car wax in there with your corncob.

I use corn media designed for cleaning (NOT cat litter) and Dillon Rapid Polish.
I run a timer on my cleaners, and normally run used cases 16 hours total.
They shine better than new, and when reloaded (correctly ;) ) they STAY shiny after firing, making them MUCH MUCH easier to find.

Except them 400 Cor-Bon cases; still haven't found them :D .
