Re: When to anneal?

If using a collet or bushing die, you may never need to anneal. Best to leave at the factory levels as much as possible. If you start to get neck splits after a bunch of firings, then consider annealing.

Good luck with your shoot. What load are you going to use?

    When to anneal?

    I am getting ready for a 1000yd. shoot and just got in a batch of Winchester brass for my 300 win mag. After I prep ie: fireform, flashholes, primerpockets, neck size, trim, turn necks and weigh. Would it be benificial to anneal at this point or is this something one does after several firings?
