Re: Annealing Lapua brass
I just annealed 100 pieces of 308 lapua brass that was fresh out of the tumbler, but mine definitely had a color change. I also use the torch it and time it method, however I am looking at getting a machine for consistency as well as safety. To the best of my knowledge the real concern when annealing is to be careful not to soften the body, when I anneal I will keep it in the heat just long enough to let the color change go about 1/4" below the shoulder which is less than the factory lapua. But I have been known to error on the side of caution.
Any comments or concerns are welcome I know there are some on here with much more experience and knowledge than I.
