  3. If you mean ss pins, not likely. The agitation is pretty mild.

  4. I probably should have mentioned its not the ss pins I'm concerned about but rather what is added as well.
    Lemishine seems to be the recommended additive which contains citric acid I believe. I had someone mention possible issues with this reacting with the brass, dezincification possibly?

  5. No, citric acid won't hurt brass as long as you don't use too much & rinse it off. Ammonia is bad, messes w/ the brass composition. BTW, it takes very little citric acid to clean brass. Add a drop or two of dish soap & things clean up pretty quickly. Rinse in very hot water & let dry. I don't use ss/wet for cleaning brass often, just really stubborn stuff. I do use it for cleaning brass jackets I am making from 22lr case to swage 223 bullets.:supergrin:
