AV Ballistics Case Polishing Medium
Are you sick of getting cases glugged up by corn cob or walnut shell polishing medium? Tired of spending money on “rejuvenators” and other expensive additives to get your cases clean? Then AVB has the answer…the AVB Case Cleaning Granulated PVC.
Made from recycled electrical cable sheathing, this chopped PVC actually assists the recycling industry, by finding a downstream use for a waste product that would otherwise be used as landfill. The finely balanced mixture of fine copper dust, and larger particles of PVC electrical cable sheathing (multi-coloured) gives a gentle cleaning and polishing effect to Brass cases, from Military Range produce to the normally “clean” pistol shells used in revolvers. AV Ballistics uses it in Cement Mixers, to do preparatory cleaning of Military Once Fired brass, prior to resale or reforming.
A batch of AVB Cleaning Medium will normally last for 15 to 20 loads of a large Vibrator/Tumbler, such as a Lyman 3200, or even more in a rotary Tumbler (various brands).
If you have a small cement mixer, then the usage life is even longer.
When the colour of the PVC has all disappeared under a coat of dirt and debris from the cases, then it is time to dispose of it (in the wheelie bin.); it can also be used to increase the porosity of soil, by mixing it in, as a garden base.
(and it is a snail poison)
And now the Cost??!!
NOW Only $33.00 per Big 5kg bag !!!!
(buy 2 and pay only $60.00)
Compare that with $40 to $50 for a ten pound (4,53 kg) box of (Imported) CornCob????
A 5kg bag will suffice for about 35-40cycles in a medium sized vibrator or tumbler.
Time to clean from 1 to 3 hours, depending on “dirtiness” of the cases.
It will remove all grit and dirt from cases, making them suitable for trouble-free resizing, and avoid scratching or scoring die sets.
The PVC medium is NOT affected by humidity or weather changes, or vermin. (See how sticky Corncob gets in the North of Australia, and the Mice love it!!!)
Helpful hint, leave primers in place when case cleaning…decap them when cleaned…that saves digging all the cleaning medium out of the pockets and flash-holes later.
Since AVB began selling this product in Queensland, we have had only one complaint…we always sell out at gun shows, and customers can’t get enough of it.
