Need opinions on annealing brass pros and cons thanks
If done properly it's all pro's and no cons except for the cost of a good machine and a little time.
Longer case life
Consistent neck tension with every reloading
More consistent ES
I anneal every one to two firings.
When annealing does it give you better accuracy shot after shot?
I believe so yes. Especially after about 4 firings and your brass necks are work hardened and all have different neck tension.
My uncle shoots 1000yd benchrest competition. He anneals after every shot. It's the only way to keep the exact same neck tension and seating pressure. It must work because he has shot some sub 3" 1000yd groups with a plain Jane 6mmbr.
thanks for the help
Another thing annealing does is help with neck seal. As brass work hardens it will loose its ability to seal up under pressure. This will be noticed by sooty necks and shoulders. Annealing this area usually fixes the leaks.
