Which one is better?

Well,I like to use those big magnolia leaves, they have a good wide scraping area.[:)]

Walnut for cleaning and corn cob for polishing. Or is that the other way around? I don't remember right now. All I know is I put it in the big Dillon tumbler to clean and smaller Dillon tumbler to polish.

Nothing better than a good old fashioned corn cob pipe. [smoke]

Imbroglio, Yobo nailed it on the head. If I had to choose only one I would go with walnut, as it appears to clean much faster. It just isn't as pretty as corn cob. I am of course assuming you are refering to brass tumbling media yes? If it is what nutsack is refering to then you gotta go w/ catulpa leaves, fairly strong(when 2-ply), wide area, very soft!

I'm still trying to figure out how to use those three shells.[%|]

This is the proverbial apples vs oranges. If you want fast cleaning, walnut. High polish, corncob. Both, then both. Since my case cleaner is not hand powered, I just dump them into the corncob and forget them for a while. This is best done with a higher quality unit, no need to burn down your house. If you find yourself wanting cases, like NOW, with a high polish, the best way is to clean a stock of them in advance.

Don't know if it's true or not but, a friend of mine told me about one time when he was hunting and nature called and that he got some of those magnolia leaves to wipe with.Well after he was through he just did not feel right back there, then he looked down at the ground where the "used" leaves were and one had ticks all over the back-the scraping side. Gives me the chills, I can't stand ticks.

Could've been worse, nutsack. Ever try poison oak?[:O]

I've been using rice for a few years, it works pretty good. I also toss in a few small stips of sweatshirt cloth, it soaks up the dirt at the bottom of the tumbler

I currently use corn cob. I let my machine run for 1 hour and the cases come out shiny. When I run out though I'm going to try some walnut..

Cool Jeopardy question. Answer: Corn cob or walnut? Question: What do Calihomo's prefer when their friends aren't around.[;)]
