I like clean, polished and shiny, inside and out.

On the inside, it's much easier to be certain that you have all the powder out of a clean, shiny interior when you check a load against a scale.

And shiny, sparkling brass makes all your buddies idolize you and the women chase you.

How would blasting abrasive work as a tumbling agent? Specifically Black Beauty produced by Reed Minerals. I ask because I've got 1,100 pounds collecting dust. It's a coal slag based, low silica content mix.
