If I clean the old millitary surplus bullets with Brass cleaners, would the bullet be effected in any way? Like would it effect powder or something? Sitting in the corner forever..

I run surplus ammo in the vib cleaner with corn cob all the time know problums. Some times surplus ammo is just to dam dirty to put in my clean guns.

I read (somewhere don't remember where) that tumbling live rounds can break down the powder which can effect the powder characteristics and effect the burn rate.
Something you might want to look into.

I have heard the same thing Franchi So i put a few doz rds in the cleaner and let it run at 45 min I took one out it was fine I let them run long story short after 10 hrs the powder was the same and shot fine. The vib cleaner will clean the ammo in one hr or less.
