I just have not been happy with the way my vibrating tumbler cleans my brass with corncob media. I do get a nice polish, but the inside and primer pockets still come out dirty. I don't think this really hurts anything, I just like it clean.
Have a friend on another shooting forum that was talking about how great SS media was at cleaning brass. After seeing some before and after photos, I decided to give it a try.
Here are a few before and after photos. All I used was water as hot as it would run from the tap and a shot of dish soap. Let them run a few hours and rinsed them off. The media will not wear out, and was very easy to do. Drained and rinsed them off, threw them in a pan and let them sit on the warm stove until dry.
Very happy with the results.

This brass is still dirty inside and had been cleaned in the corncob media already. It was still dirty to me.
Primer pockets with corncob still stuck in them.
