When the cut up dryer sheets cannot keep it clean and when it takes too long to get the brass the way I want them.
A 30cal will reach out and touch them. A 50cal will kick their butt.

I was able to push mine at least 6 years before changing it out. Walnut is what I use.

I just changed mine this morning after several years. It was a deep dirty shade of green.

Corn cob and some turtle wax scratched remover.

Now my brass is really clean and bright in just one hour.
