I'm thinking about using a solution of Simple Green household cleaner to clean up some of my pistol handloads that have bullet lubricant smeared on the cases. My plan is to spray a tray full of rounds with Simple Green and then wipe the individual rounds dry with a paper towel. Are there any chemicals (such as ammonia) in Simple Green that could weaken the brass?

I can't tumble the rounds clean because they're loaded with hollowpoint bullets and the corncob bits get stuck in the cavities.

Try it.
I use it on everything. It causes rust if the stuff is not rinsed off and the gun dried.

There are no chemicals in Simple Green that will hurt brass.
I would rinse the brass off after using Simple Green.


Match bullets at Kmart Prices.
