What is your annealing set-up

I need a quality annealing set-up. I want to know what the hard-core amongst us are using. You know who you are - shooting cartridges I've never heard of that take 8 steps to make brass for . Broz.

I want to know how you stretch your cases for as many loadings as possible before you have to re-tool your brass factory to make some more. Any tips on annealing equipment and tricks on using it consistently are much appreciated...

Thanks

Same as Jeff except I use the torches versus the 25 pound cylinder and splitters.

Benchsource is the way to go IMO. I run two torches.

+1, if you do enough volume. Fast and very consistent. I used to use a cake pan with enough water to cover half the case, and a propane torch. Heating time is determined with Templac usong both approaches.

Greyfox does your brass seem to be more consistent with the Benchsource vs the cake pan method.Is it even noticeable or just a time thing?

I've been using the Hornady anneal case holders and drill,, and been wondering if I need to move on to bigger and better.
