$20 should get you a dog food sized bag from most any feed store. Best money I've spent in a long time. Make sure you get the fine crushed though. I bought some course crushed corn cob by mistake and it gets into a .30 cal hole alright, just doesn't like to come out.

Ever since I went Ultrasonic I haven't been using media, but the pet supply and feed store are great tips - I always thought that us reloaders were paying too much for a small jug of the stuff.

 If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

Nice folks...Here is what Helen said this afternoon.They offer many different sizes so I asked them what was the best size for polishing brass...Hi Rob,12/20 is the most common size. Our smallest package is a 50lb bag! However, if you go to your local PetCo, PetSmart or even Walmart you will find our product packaged for bird cage litter. The brand is Kaytee, and it is found in the bird section of the pet store. I believe 8lbs would be the smallest package. You are welcome to buy a 50lb bag here if you are looking for a larger quanity.If you have any further questions, please let us know.Sincerely,Helen CantrellDirector of Sales and MarketingHelen Cantrell [helen@ecoshell.com]PS. The factory is just off the I-5 Near Chico if you want to buy direct in 50 lbs. bags
