>From the images there, it appears most of them do leave an excessive amount 
of gloss on the surfaces.  I wonder if an initial cleaning in something 
like Tarnex, which leaves a dull, non glossy, fairly white surface behind 
might help?  It works great on cartridge cases, then the shine is restored 
by an overnight session in my Lyman vibrator with a corn cob and rouge 
carrying media, which I don't do because that media has now been well 
contaminated with case lube.  I don't want the gloss anyway.

I'll go see if Jerry's has any of that G96 brass black this evening, it 
looks about as foolproof as any.
