die polishing

I have an 30-06 die that is scratching brass. What is the easiest way to polish it? Mabey I could give it a long ride in the tumbler?

Will work for brass.

I apologise in advance for spelling errors.

First check to see if bits of brass are stuck to the die and causing the scratches. If so, possibly you can clean it out with a bore solvent that you would use to remove copper fouling.
