Came across this question @ Yahoo Answers.

Just use #000Steel Wool with nothing on it. Brasso and other solvents will neutralize Powder and Primers on any ammunition. They will be perfectly safe to shoot as long as the green corrosion is on the bullet itself and not the casing…….

I recently discovered Yahoo Answers. I have not asked any questions, nor do I intend to. Most questions I have can be answered by fellow shooters and friends, and if they can’t help me I turn to gun forums.

There do seem to be some knowledgeable people answering questions at Yahoo.
