Case annealing question

What is the temperature at which annealing begins?

Or how hot can the case head be heated before it is ruined?

I've found that a 650/660 degree temp stick is used to indicated the highest temperature desired below the neck when annealing the neck and shoulder.

Would any "annealing" occur to the case head if it reached something like say 450 degrees F?

I'd just as soon gather some good counsel before I ended up trying it and blazing away and measureing expansion etc.

Roy:

Try "this link on annealing". I should answer a lot of your questions.

If you get the urge to try the Ken Light machine in the article, I can highly recommend it. I've got one and it is great. Quick, easy and painless. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Case annealing question

ss7mm,

That was guick and a good reference.

However, what I may have to do is some heating around the flash hole for a little swiss navy project I'm working on. When the OKH boys were working on this venture down at Ogden Depot, I learned that their success may have been achieved using low temperature solder. (395 -430 degrees F)

Re: Case annealing question

Sorry about that. I replied before you added the last 3 lines of additional info. You're wanting to work on the south end of a north bound horse, and I don't even want to get the south end hotter than is necessary.

I see where you're going with this though, and good luck.
