case prep.
« on: March 23, 2014, 09:30:08 PM »
I was wondering, how many reloaders  on this site anneal their brass cases,how often,and what type of equipment are you using to do this process.I don't do this process myself right now,but I have being looking into to this and wondering what other member's thoughts are on this process?

  Itís another pain in the ass step.   I have done a lot of it mostly for varmint rounds and cases with long necks.  I do it when a few of the case necks in a group of brass start to split this is not an accuracy step for me just trying to prolong case life.

  Really I donít even do it properly no temp sticks or equipment made for it either.  My system seems to work for me.   Looking into getting a machine thoughÖ

If you are going 3-4 reloading per case, its a good idea to anneal.
It will normalize the brass, and re-set the work harness imparted by firing and resizing.
Its all about consistency and reducing variables.

Thanks for the replies guys ,I was thinking of doing it for the same reasons mention by both of you.There are alot of annealing machines out there now ,what do you think the top choices are?I know this is another step in reloading, but with a good machine it can be done fairly easy,and in a timely matter .

Multiple heat sources or a machine that turns the case as it heats plus automation. 
 
  This isnít something every bubba with a dream has they are expensive I donít think you will have a problem with quality.
