View Full Version : Surprised me
:eek: A couple weeks ago, I had shot my M84 loaded with black powder. Of course, I properly cleaned the rifle and put it in the safe. Today, I went to reload those fored cases and found green corrosion around the necks of all the brass. So, from now on I will also 'properly clean' the brass as well.:headbang:
Most of the BPCR shooters will keep a jug of their favorite brass cleaning solution at hand on the firing line. As soon as they fire a round (or a string) they dunk the empties in the jug. When finished firing, they screw the top on the jug and off they go!
It has become usual for BPCR to deprime at the range and put the brass in a jar of water with a bit of dishsoap. At home rinse the cases with clean water and use a testtube brush to scrub the fouling out of the case. Some chuck the brush into an electric screwdriver. The cases will be tarnished but won't corrode. If you have a tumbler put the still damp (not wet) cases in walnut media moistened with three or four capsfull of mineral spirits with a tablespoon of Bon Ami and they will look nearly new after two hours.
I carry drinking water bottles filled with water with a couple of drops of dish detergent and a couple spoons of baking soda to drop fired cases in right at the bench. When I get home, I dump the water out and cut the top of the bottle open to get the cases.
I use a plastic peanut butter jar. No cutting needed and it holds a lot of cases.
