Source for brass pin tumbling media

looking for the brass pins/pellets to clean aluminum baffles, but all I can find is stainless. Anyone have a source for brass media?

If you are thinking bb's for a bb gun they are steel, put a magnet to them and see.

I put a magnet to the bb and it did stick. That's a lot of snipping, the wire I mean.

Will brass media be safe on anodized aluminum baffles in a Tirant 45?
