As we publish articles in our series on Precision Reloading we’re going to attempt to do them in a logical order that mirrors the precision reloading process. For that reason the first article that delves into the precision reloading process itself, after defining what it is in the first article, is going to be on the subject of cleaning brass. That might seem strange, but there’s a reason for it. You want to start your precision reloading process with some sort of cleanup of your fired cases. That way as you lube them and run them through sizing dies you aren’t forcing dirt and small pieces of stone and other gunk up into the dies. You want to keep the dies clean and free of burrs or gouges on the interior.
