Flitz and Nu Polish with Walnut.  Corncob if I wanta show off.
Gave up on SS Pins couple years ago - they messed with my sd's.  If I was using range brass or really old brass I would use the SS Pins.
If you use the ss Pins in a wet tumbler get some Blaster Graphite Spray Lube,  Spray 3/8 inch in the cap or a small cup - ( tilt cup on an angle) dip neck in graphite, wipe outside, set neck down in your tray.  This helps your bullet release more consistently since you got rid of all the carbon tumbling.

I don’t really clean my brass so I’m no help. Only thing I do is steel wool the neck and shoulder to clean off the burnt case lube from annealing    Almost never clean primer pockets either.   :dunno:

After 3hrs & 15 min, I pulled the brass. They were like new shiny. All brands went in, all were pretty dull, all came out like new. I used a toothpick to clean the flash holes as needed. I'll finish loading them up today. I think the Remington brass shined up better than when you buy new Remington ammo by far.
I felt like a one legged cat trying to bury a terd on a frozen pond!
