Hornady Manufacturing has taken cartridge case cleaning to the next level with the new Lock-N-Load Sonic Cleaner. A combination of intense ultrasonic cleaning action and a unique cleaning solution, One Shot Sonic Clean, provide an extremely effective and efficient method to remove carbon residue and other foreign materials from the entire case. Unlike tumblers, this sonic cleaner quickly cleans the inside of the case as well as primer pockets. The ultrasonic action creates microjets that blast carbon buildup off cases, small gun parts and equipment. The Lock-N-Load Sonic Cleaner can hold up to two hundred .223 cases or one hundred .308 cases.

Hornady Lock-N-Load Sonic Cleaner 1.2L 110 Volt is rated 3.75 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased! This shell cleaner does everything it is advertised to do. After only about 20 minutes of cleaning, the shells that I put in it were clean inside and out. Even some very old and tarnished brass was acceptably clean. A tumbler with media would make them shine, but this cleaner does get the inside unlike a tumbler would. I will recommend this cleaner to friends and family. The price from Natchez was exceptional. Yes, I am well pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hornady Sonic Cleaner Recently I purchased a Hornady Sonic Cleaner for reloading. I had heard good things about Sonic Cleaners and found the Hornady at a great price from Natchez. I have loaded pistol and rifle ammunition for over thirty three years. I have had several tumblers that will easily accommodate 500 rounds of rifle brass. I was kind of thinking the Sonic Cleaner would be a replacement for my tumbler but found it to be more of a valuable addition to my tumbler. The first thing I researched was how the Sonic Cleaner worked and what type of cleaner to use with it. It is quite possible that you can use the Hornady cleaner and clean your brass sufficiently to be satisfied. However, I generally look at price per round as I like to budget, not spending too much on range brass. If you have ever picked muddy cases off the ground, you know what I mean. My first experience with the Hornady Sonic Cleaner was just that, range brass. I cleaned 540 plus rounds of some of the filthiest Remington 223 brass I have ever had the misfortune to come across. I used a mixture of 60% water 40% distilled white vinegar with one tablespoon sea salt and one tablespoon dish soap. After 8 minutes in the Hornady Sonic Cleaner I should have stopped as I could see the dirt and powder residue were nearly at the point of being completely emulsified and could almost be wiped from the brass with a cloth. But, being the novice I cleaned the brass for another 8 minutes and was horrified to find how entirely excessive this was. As now the brass had started the leaching process and you could see the blue Windex color from the copper in a bucket of warm soapy water. Now, almost sure I had ruined the brass I had but one idea left and it was the right one, the tumbler. I tumbled the brass for several hours in Lyman Tuffnut (Walnut) media and finally it recovered most of the shine. I am certain I will lose several reloadings for that particular brass but it is clean. I would most certainly recommend the Hornady Sonic Cleaner to any reloader looking to make his brass look like new. I discovered that with the vinegar mixture you only need to clean most brass, for about the 380 seconds setting. Then wash thoroughly, preferably with an acid neutralizer like baking soda. Then tumble to recover the shine and polish. The brass will then resemble New never before fired. A word of caution do not use vinegar on blued gun parts as this will most certainly remove your bluing. Another word of caution longer is not always better, 4 to 6 minutes will usually be long enough to clean the inside and outside of brass cases. The Hornady documentation Warns the purchaser about cleaning Jewelry with a Setting and other susceptible items. I will eventually try other cleaners and now I am considering a larger Sonic cleaner, like the Lyman, as the Hornady has about a 180 223 case limit. But, for the price I am extremely satisfied.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work for me, rating won't go any lower I bought mine right after they came out. Maybe they've made some improvements. Mine doesn't clean very well at all. I've been in my loading shed for hours and turned it back on for a 480 second cycle every time that I noticed that it had stopped. I must have put it through the 480 second cycle with the Hornady brand cleaner at least 12 times probably several more on several occasions. I usually don't put over 50 cases or less in it at a time, much less if they are magnum cases. I have never seen a spotless primer pocket and can usually look inside of the case with a light and see carbon at the base. After I finish with cleaning them as best as I can, I rinse them with fresh water 3 or 4 times. If I let them dry, they seem to have a dull look. I then take them and put them in my viberating polisher with walnut media and a polishing agent. After an hour they look great. If I put them in wet then it takes around 3 hours to polish them because the water makes the polishing media stick to the brass untill it gets dry enough to let the polishing media work.
