Walnut is harder and coarser, for cleaning quickly. Corn cob is finer and softer, for more polishing. Either will do the job.

I just use walnut, since clean is all I care about. If you like them pretty, too, use corn.

The answer to your question is: c. all of the above.

I use walnut for cleaning. After the walnut, I throw the brass into corncob with a little Midway brass polish. Cases come out great!

I've used both and can't see much of a difference, brass goes in dirty, comes out clean! guess it comes down to which one costs less,they both work fine.

I just use rice. It’s real easy to find in 20-lb bags for $4 or less. Add some Dillon’s brass polish and you are set. When the rice gets dirty, just invite the mother in law over for dinner. Dirty rice anyone?

Corncob. In 50 lb bags its cheaper than dirt. Add a cap or two of polishing goo and use until its too dirty to touch.
