    It won't clean inside the cases. Needs to be crushed to clean throughly.

    People say the walnut pet bedding at the pet shops are the way to go if you're looking to save a few bucks.

    Reptile bedding works. Know few use it. Still have regular media. With pet media its figured pee'd thrown away. Attack word gun goes up. Researched on getting it check out pet store. But chewy was cheaper. Just have to watch shipping less have other pets then way go.

    This.

    Lizard litter from my local pet supply store. It's finely crushed walnut shells. It's small enough to not get stuck in primer pockets or flash holes. Down side is it's very dusty. I prime it with Nu Finish car polish and some mineral spirits. Keeps the dust down and does a good job polishing the cases. I also throw in some used dryer sheets to filter the dust.
