Re: annealing and brass prep what order

I think that the traditional answer is to anneal first and then resize.Other steps like trimming to length,chamfering ,primer pocket work can be done in any order.However, that being said, I have always annealed last .Early on it just felt like bullets seated the smoothest and maintained the most uniform length that way for me.
I am convinced that consistency is more important than the order in which things are done.

Re: annealing and brass prep what order

I use A slightly different order than some. I clean, Anneal, size and trim.

I feel I get better sizing because after Annealing the spring back if the brass is more consistent
there fore the bullet grip is more consistent IMO.

+1.

Why would you put on clean white underwear with dirty hands?

You clean the brass first (like your hands) and then you anneal and prep.
