However the brass done this way does tarnish or rather becomes duller with in a couple of days after being shiny. But the old buzz bucket with ground walnut and NuFinish has been the final stage after the reloading process to remove the mixture I use for sizing. It also shines the brass up again and the polish keeps it shinning.
I gotta admit for years shiny brass didn't mean diddly-do-squat to me. It certainly didn't make a difference in performance either. But being an old ornery cuss in these "golden years" I kinda enjoy it looking pretty.
That's curious, I've never seen that with my brass. I've got some I tumbled in SS over 6 months ago that's still shiny. I like you go for the bling anymore.
