I have heard of so many different variations regarding case neck anealing: some say standing the cases in a container with water covering the bases and heating up the neck with a gas flame untill the neck starts to glow a dirty red colour and then knock the case over into the water(the flame being applied from one sideof the neck and the brass conductivity spreading the heat right around the case).. others say let the case cool down while upright in the water..?
Yet another group advocates the case to be spun around while the flame is concentrated on the neck untill the desired colour change is reached and then dumped into water.. Shouldnt brass be allowed to cool down slowly?
I have ordered some gel which will indicate the temperature of the case and this will allow for consistant temperatures throughout the annealing proses, but would still like more info on what is considered to be the best technique for annealing,including the size and concentration of the flame.
Any help would really be appreciated [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
