you will want the corn cob media as small as possible the stuff I have seen at pet supply stores seem kind of large

media size depends on what brass your tumbling if your doing something like 9mm or larger the cheap pet store stuff works great. (what I use)  When I tumble .223 I need something smaller or plan spending hours getting all the media out of your brass(ask me how I know this)

Um, yeah, that crap sucks. Luckily I don't ever have to make that mistake again.

Sandblasting / industrial abrasives supply company.  You didn't think we were the only industry using corn and walnut for cleaning, did you?

Lizard litter from WalMart.  It is walnut and does a great job.

+1 to this, when I was looking for silica sand(can't get anymore), I found that the place across the street from where I work  , aside from having the BlackBeauty I needed for blasting, they also had corncob and a couple sizes of walnut ranging from $10-$19 for 50 pound bags, that's where I'll be buying from next.
