brass rifle case cleaning

brass rifle bullets


Cleaning and reloading rifle cases can be a pain. However there is an easy and quick way with an Ultrasonic cleaner.

Traditionally tumblers have been used in the past, but the results leave a lot to be desired. With an ultrasonic cleaning tank, the process can be done in around 15 - 20 minutes. Apart from the machine, using the correct fluid can make all the difference. Search on Google and you'll find many "old wives tales" of various potions and chemicals.

Having discussed this with a few of my customers who clean brass rifle cases, there are 2 ways that are (almost) guaranteed to delivery excellent results every time. One customer who lives in my home town buys boxes of citric acid power from the Boots the Chemist. He dilutes the powder and then places a couple of rows into the ultrasonic tank. Turn the machine on and leave running for about 20 minutes. He then removes the cases and rinses in taps water. 

Another customer uses a product we sell called SEACLEAN. This is an organic concentrate that cleans bullet cases really well. 

No matter which cleaning fluid works best for you, the principal of cleaning cases for reloading using an ultrasonic cleaner is fast and efficient.
