    GENERAL Use all equipment as the manufacturer recommends. Study the instructions carefully and become

    thoroughly familiar with the operation of the product. If you do not have written instructions, request a copy from the equipment manufacturer.

    Do not take short cuts. Attempting to bypass established procedures is an invitation to an accident.

    Observe good housekeeping in the reloading area. Keep tools and components neat, clean and orderly. Promptly and completely clean up primer and powder spills.

    Reload only when you can give your undivided attention. Do not reload when fatigued or ill, or under the influence of medications or alcohol.

    no responsibility, expressed or implied, for the use of ammunition reloaded with this product.

    The RCBS Ultrasonic Case Cleaner-2 is designed to clean metallic surfaces. Ultrasonic cleaners work by creating millions of tiny air bubbles inside the liquid by high frequency vibration. The air bubbles burst inside the liquid on the surface of the submerged items and shake off the debris to achieve the cleaning effect. When used with the RCBS Ultrasonic Case Cleaning Solution, your cases will be clean and free of carbon fouling, lubricants, and debris on the exterior and interior, of your cartridge cases. Purified or distilled water has the same cleaning effect as regular tap water for ultrasonic cleaning. Therefore using tap water is sufficient. However, your tap water may contain minerals and solids, which may cause spots on surfaces. When cleaning silver or copper items where oxidation and carbon fouling has darkened the items, special cleaning solutions such as RCBS Ultrasonic Case Cleaning Solution needs to be added to the water to remove the oxidation. The RCBS Ultrasonic Cleaner-2 comes equipped with a special degassing function. When cleaning solutions are added to the water in the tank, droplets of solution will form which take time to dissolve in the water. The solution may also form many small air bubbles on the tank walls. The droplets and bubbles act as a buffer or insulator, which may reduce the cleaning effectiveness. The degassing function will aid in dissipating the bubbles and droplets, which will improve the cleaning efficiency. The degas function will operate for 2 minutes, which is generally enough time to dissipate the droplets and bubbles.

    To order the cleaning solution or find out more information, contact RCBS or visit our website (www.rcbs.com).
