storing brass

5 posts in this topic

I've been running all my brass thru my tumbler this week and sorting out calibers and head stamps. All this time I'm wondering how to keep them nice and shiny so, I thought why not try to put them in the seal-a-meal bags. I put them in 100 count bags and sure enough, it sucked em up tighter then the top olive in a jar. I'm just going to keep an eye on them to make sure they don't start to turn colors. One thing though, if you try this make sure you wipe them off good with a dry rag to get the dust off. My first bag turned a rouge color from the dust and residual in the brass. Thought I'd pass this on.

I store mine in a zip-loc bag also.

I don't have one of the fancy vacume baggers YET!!!!

I do still have a bunch of MTM boxes that I use though.

What will tarnish the brass the fastest is the oil from your hand wear some light cotton gloves when handeling them.
