Re: Precision Hand Loading For Long Range-Chapter One: Brass Sort & Prep By Tres MonC
With the Hornady kit it is my understanding the aluminum case holder concentrates the heat more. Surely Hornady has the correct temp Tempilaq figured out for their system, but here's a sure fire way of finding out...
Place a case in the holder as per H's instructions. Light your torch and get it going, then turn out the lights. Now roll the mouth/neck of the case in the flame until you get the faintest detectable maroon color. Immediately remove the case from the heat and quench it. Turn the light on and see what your Tempilaq looks like.
A faint maroon color in an otherwise DARK room is THE correct temp. You can experiment from here to see if you have the correct Tempilaq.
Thanks so much for your kind & gracious words.
Per your question I'd give Hornady a call and see what they say...
I have not seen the entrance of their gages. Are they just a plain hole or are they tapered like Sinclaires?
In the end the main thing is you measure the same way from the same place each time consistently. Find the one that is best fit and use it EACH time. But I'd still give H a call.
