Finally got a tumbler and media for baffles oh yeah much easier.
Reported, hand loading isn't nerdy.
Common dish soap has really worked well for me wet tumbling in the past. Simple Green works well for even black powder fouling.
Thanks for the tip. I soaked aluminum baffles in balistol and water overnight then put em in the tumbler with crushed walnut shells for 2 hrs it got 3/4 of it off should’ve left it longer I guess. Hey is common or simple green safe for aluminum
I don't know about aluminum. It has been fine for brass and steel. Corn Cobb media with brasso cuts a lot faster than walnut. It just doesn't polish as well. I was thinking stainless on the baffles.
In all honesty, I'm just jealous because I don't know shit about long range shooting or hand loading. I'd love to learn, but I don't have the time, money or patience for it.
I’ll look for Cobb media next. My first one came with aluminum baffles so I have to go easy on it live and learn. Last one Ill buy like that
I soak mine in power steering fluid, rinse them off and buff the remainder off with a dremel and polishing wheel. Wear a respirator though.
Purple Power will eat aluminum up, I think Simple Green will too!
It is all 120 year old technology save optics and semi auto fire. It really isn't worth it for 9mm, .223, etc. Money savings come from 8×57, 44 mag etc. If you aren't shooting fairly exotic centerfire, you are just better off buying a few cases of ammo while you can. If it were not for Mauser, Garand, and Colt, my equipment would be sitting up. You just couldn't get ammo a few years ago.
