    Someone here posted about using corncob from Drillspot. I can't find that post. Doe's anyone remember what grit is common for brass polishing? Thanks Lightman

    I use the 14/20 and it's pretty fine. I have seen where others use the20/40 and don't have any problems.

    With the 14/20 I occasionally get one stuck in the flash hole. Very easy to poke out.

    I use the finer 20/40 corncob. It's small enough to fall through primer holes. It polishes the brass very bright if you run it a couple of hrs.

    Hello Lightman: I use Walnut shells for cleaning 18/40 grit. and 20/40 grit
    corncob for polishing. I also add Flitz polish to both. The Brass is shiner than new. The Flitz puts a coating on the Brass it will not take your finger print and very slick. very little lube needed for resizing.

    Take Care, SAFE SHOOTING ALWAYS.

    Just a follow-up. I ordered from Drillspot on-line the other night. The stuff was on my doorstep two days later, with the standard free shipping. It looks good too! I was impressed! I'm not connected with them in any way, just want to add a good word, when its justified. Thanks to those that responded to my post, too! Lightman
