Understanding what makes artillery blow up when being drilled:
Information to help with removing rust from iron:
- Some collector input:
- For most bullets, soak overnight in water, shaking the container gently a time or two. Then a light brushing. Rarer bullets I'll clean with a bit more care. For bullets that are displayed, I gently wipe off with tacky cheesecloth, and coat with 2-3 coats of matte poly to keep the bullets from further oxidation/deterioration. Put my collection number on a small square of white out on top of the poly.
