Read carefully. The picture shows three pounds, three types of media. It even shows convenient nifty recloseable screw top plastic containers.You get one pound of walnut media in a nondescript cardboard box. Granted, I may not have read carefully, and can't blame anyone but myself, but that won't stop me from not ordering anything from these people who can't even be bothered to be honest enough place an accurate picture on their ad ever again. Plbrfffffft! to you!!
Works great and comes with a polish in the media. I have reloaded a few thousand .44 mag rounds with mine and am doing some .45 as I write this. It works great! Another reviewer was mentioning the walnut dust inside; don't worry or waste time with that. The dust/polish coats the inside but doesn't affect the chrono data one bit. I've reloaded thousands of rounds with the coating on the inside, its fine.
This stuff is a safe bet for great media at a great price.
This stuff works great, but it takes time! First tumble your range brass in this stuff for a couple hours, THEN tumble in some corn cob stuff from the pet store with some brass polish and be amazed with the results.
I agree, at first when I just tumbled with this there was RED stuff everywhere! Then I hit it with the corn cob and was astonished!
Extremely quick delivery. I got the regular Super Saver shipping and received my package the very next day. It did not come in a plastic container as the picture shows, instead inside a box it was a plastic baggie with the media. Walnut media works well for me and my brass.
I purchased a 3 pound plastic container of this tumbler media from Bass Pro as I had a gift card for that store. I use it for cleaning brass cartridges for pistol and rifle ammo. This material will polish most brass cartridges to a shine that looks better than some new factory ammo. The media is corn cob that is treated with a polishing compound similar to jeweler's rouge. That is probably the reason why the brass will shine so well. However, there are two down sides to using this media for cleaning brass. First, it leaves a residue of from the polishing rouge inside the cartridges. I think it sticks to the left over burnt powder residue. I have a Lyman brass prep station and I have to run the cartridges through the brush cleaning tool to remover the residue. The second issue is if you de-prime the cartridge first, then run in through the vibrator (or a tumbler) with this media, it has a tendency to leave corn cob particles in the primer pocket. The particles will not come out with a simple shaking of the cartridges and makes it a little harder to clean the primer pocket out. I have found it best to leave the spent primer in, and de-prime them after they have been run through the vibrator. I have been thinking about switching over to steel pins, but everything I read so far indicates you have to use a tumbler rather than a vibrator with this type of media. I have two vibrators and am reluctant to invest in a tumbler. If anyone has had success with steel media and a vibrator, I sure would like to hear about it. The bottom line on this media is it does polish the heck out of brass, but it does have some pitfalls that one should be aware of if they intend to use it. Ypu might want to look at untreated corn cob or walnut shells for cleaning used ammo.
