    If done properly it's all pro's and no cons except for the cost of a good machine and a little time.

    Pro's:
    Longer case life
    Consistent neck tension with every reloading
    More consistent ES

    I anneal every one to two firings.

    When annealing does it give you better accuracy shot after shot?

    I believe so yes. Especially after about 4 firings and your brass necks are work hardened and all have different neck tension.

    My uncle shoots 1000yd benchrest competition. He anneals after every shot. It's the only way to keep the exact same neck tension and seating pressure. It must work because he has shot some sub 3" 1000yd groups with a plain Jane 6mmbr.
