Is wet tumbling with Brass Shine better than using a combination of Dawn and Lemi Shine?

Brass Shine certainly got the brass clean. Is it worth the $10-$15/lb price? Only you can decide that for yourself, but there are some advantages to consider:
- formulated specifically for cleaning metal
- little foaming
- convenient; no mixing or measuring specific proportions of separate cleaners
- includes a water softener
- concentrated; 1 lb bags = 25 gallons of cleaning solution
- made in USA

Assembling two AR pistol lowers. One of the lowers is the Foxtrot Mike Products .45 ACP FM-45 lower receiver, and the other is a "standard" AR-15 lower receiver I picked up from Palmetto State Armory.

Watch the video here: https://thereloadersnetwork.com/2019/10/26/nas3-9mm-cases-and-s3-reload-dies-giveaway-winner/

Buffalo's Outdoors video on the XAegis Brass Catcher: https://thereloadersnetwork.com/2019/09/15/brass-catcher-for-ar-style-firearms-xaegis/

The Deflector Brake is a disposable, peel, stick and press accessory for AR-15s. It absorbs some of the energy of ejected casings and reduces the speed and distance the brass travels. It minimizes damage to the brass which increases the reliability and efficiency of reloading, and it deflects spent brass forward and away from the shooter making AR-15s safer for left-handed shooters.

I have always used card tables or other temporary tables to do my bullet casting on. I have now upgraded to a dedicated bench, and this one comes with storage for all of my bullet molds and other casting gear.

I bought this from my local Harbor Freight. Here is the exact model: https://www.harborfreight.com/46-in-mobile-storage-cabinet-with-wood-top-64012.html

YouTube deleted my 9th video, and this one came with channel strike #3.  Maybe this was the warning that their new strike system has that I never received?  Warning or not, YouTube clearly has channels that mention bullet casting or reloading in their cross hairs.

Everything is better with bacon!

This includes casting bullets and reloading ammo.

Believe anything I say at your own risk, (excluding, of course, that "everything is better with bacon" - that is an undisputable law of nature!)
