Re: Does 20 year old brass need to be annealed?

What would it hurt to go ahead and anneal it anyway. While I do not have a metallurgical background I have had old brass split some necks on the first firing. I have had good results with the same group or lot of brass after I have annealed it.

Nothing, if you do it correctly.
