Re: Has anyone ever heard of annealing Hornady SSTs or InterBonds?

He shows putting them in a pair of grips, and rotating them slowly once through the flame. I am wondering if you could softly chuck them in a drill and spin them over a flame faster, and have the same or better results. Seems like the disperson of heat would be more uniform. I would also think you would need a little more heat to change the metal.

+1, it is all B.S.

Those Kiwis have great fun taking the micky out of people. This is just another example.

By the way, the Interbonds are very soft and don't need to be made any softer.

You can't! I don't have a torch so I tried it with my grill lighter...guess what, plastic melts! Go figure.

The microwave didn't work either.

I think he is full of it. I e-mailed him asking if he ever annealed a Barnes and he said no because at long range if the bullet doesn't fragment a large amount of its weight it wont kill fast, even if the bullet expands to twice its original diameter. Broz has had an exit with every elk that he shot with his 338 Lapua and Berger 300 OTM bullets and they apparently kill just fine. I think he mentioned somewhere that 80-90% fragmentation is what he prefers.
