    So I was at the local pet store looking for Lizard Litter and they didn't have it. They did however have a bag of walnut kitty litter called Purr & Simple. Any ever used it? It seems to be mostly just crushed walnut shells. I am going to test it out and will report back.

    Good luck. Most of the walnut, corn and wheat based kitty litters have clumping agents added. Not sure what effect that will have.

    I've tried some of the litter materials and found the grains to be much too large to do a good job. Maybe if these are smaller than the usual granule size of pet litter they'll work fine.

    That is what sold me on these, they are very small. Not like the Hartz corn that gets stuck everywhere...

    I picked up some Zilla walnut litter that seems to do a good job. It's not dusty either.

    I have tried just about everything at one time or another. From a kitty litter experiment gone wrong I wouldn't touch anything that has "kitty" in the name...unless I wanted to make pave stone.

    The Lizard litter I use (which I found at PetSMART) is small enough to go through the flashhole on .38 specials and .223 (A slow pour like an hourglass). It does a great job and I like it very much. I check flashholes every time and I tumble a fair amount of brass. I would estimate that 1 in 5000 cases gets a little piece wedged in the flash hole. (It happened twice in the last year.)

    Massive Failure, do not try, very dusty and it isn't really crushed walnut but walnut pellets crushed down. Oh well, back to Lizard Litter for me.

    There's a post I put up last year I think, about the best deal for the Zilla walnut being a place on Amazon.com, even once shipping is added in. Price comparable to the Drillspot corncob. Search my posts and you'll find it.

    I still do not under stand why persons use pet products for a blast/cleaning media. The raw product used is waste after the good stuff has been used.

    Blue, try the Zilla walnut. Fine grained, low dust, good stuff.
