Whether you’re a handloader cleaning brass or a serious shooter scrubbing guns, nothing makes the job easier than an ultrasonic cleaner. If you’ve never tried one, now is the time — RCBS, an industry leader in loading gear and supplies, now offers a bigger, better machine than ever before.
RCBS Ultrasonic Case Cleaner 2
RCBS is proof that sometimes bigger really is better, at least when it comes to ultrasonic cleaners. The new-for-2017 Ultrasonic Case Cleaner-2 makes significant changes from the previous model, with a 100 percent larger capacity. With a 6.3 quart unit, the Case Cleaner-2 is indeed twice as big as its predecessor, but that’s not the only change. This new version is built with a second ceramic heater and transducer to clean both brass cases and gun parts quicker and more thoroughly.

The LED display features touch buttons and is easily programmable with a timer that can be set for up to 30 minutes
