Pickle bath for castings?


I am looking for a pickle bath make up. I have some casting parts that are need to be stripped. I have heard that pickling them is the best way to go. I have also heard that a mixture of nitric acid and ammonium bifluoride is great. I do not know the ratios and are there any other pickling baths for stripping casting parts. Any help would be appreciated.
