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

    MILLIONS OF CASES LATER

    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 .
