    Recently picked up the above. Most is lc and I believe it's most 69.

    There is one DEN 43 and a few fa match 60 and a few tw 52 and 53.

    One of the tw brass has some waxy blue like substance in one I removed most with toothpick before thinking I shoulda took a picture. Best I can research the tw most likely had corrosive primers and boy they are a bear to decap.

    My question what is the best way to neutralize brass to reuse.

    I feel like wet tumbling, or any other tumbling would get the corrosive primer gunk out, if that is your concern. Once, I had some Korean brass that was a bear to size and get the primers out. I just was not too worried, but that is just me. Looks like a good score...

    If you are that worried about it once they are deprimed put them in a bucket with some water and dish soap (Dawn). Then rattle them around for a few minutes, drain off the soapy water, and rinse the same way a couple times. After they are dry they should be good to go.
    Don't forget to get rid of the primer crimps by reaming or swaging or you'll never get primers back in.

    Frog thx. I figured on running all them through my rcbs swaging die. The tw brass might be tough.

    Least I can pretty much guaranteed they are once fired.
