Anealing Machine

Post by Corjack » Mon Nov 05, 2018 3:27 pm

Finally got my Mark II machine. Plugged it in, and did about 60 6xc. Changed pilots and did about 25 8x57. Seemed to work flawlessly. Got all winter to play with it.

Sick! Edging towards getting the one with the feeder. Did this one come from Brownells or from another source?

Looks awesome and with the new program it makes it much easier. I think Joe338ST just bought one as well.

Graf And Sons. I may get the feeder eventually, but it is pretty fast without it. Just piddling around, I have annealed , sized and trimmed 250+ brass this afternoon.

After a few firings, the case neck gets hard, and does not grip the bullet consistently. Anealing returns the case to its normal elastic neck properties. Also prevents split necks, as an added bonus.

Thats better, and I guess thats the only reloading component you didn't have in the shed :think:

Yep, got mine from BRT. Awesome unit. Q-Store also have them. BRT were good. As usual it arrived quickly - within 2 days. Ordered 6 pilots. Needed a number 55 pilot which was not in stock.. Gave them an email to notify me when that arrived in stock. Got a reply within 2 weeks and ordered that also. Good service....

Morten. This allows you to re- use the brass many more times also. If you don't anneal case necks, the brass neck gets very brittle and will generally crack or split after about 5 reloads. Neck splitting also depends on how much work the die set is doing on your brass necks on resizing. Some bad dies compress the neck by 15 thou before the expander ball expands the neck internal diameter to 2-3 thou smaller than bullet diameter so you can seat the bullet. Some cases such as 338 Snipetac and 338 Lap cost $5 per brass case. Annealing allows you to re- use the case over 20 times..

Also as Ron said it reduces neck spring back so projectiles are held better and more consistentl by the case and should improve accuracy...

I got my AMP machine a couple of weeks ago. I put it right to work and verified that annealing on every firing does help. With brand new NORMA brass or 1x, I got an extreme spread of more than 50 fps with a particular load. After annealing, my Es dropped to a repeatable 8-9 fps. Huge difference in groups as a result. If I annealed the new brass I got the same results.

All of my cases will be getting annealed on every firing from now on, as will new brass (Most of my brass these days is Norma.)

That is a huge difference in accuracy there!
