Petey, I liked your post, very informative and backs up all the positives I have experienced my my AMP. I was a very early adopter, had mine for years it’s the very first model Alex put out and it’s annealed 1000’s of rounds with zero issues. I’ve also had an annealeze, royal pain to switch calibers and if my AMP quite tomorrow I would be giving Alex a call for another one.
The same naysayers on this thread are some of the same ones that run other great members down on other threads. Doesn’t take long to see this. Just say thanks for their input and move on.
I appreciate your post, stick around!
Thank you. And you’re right, it’s very easy to switch to a different cartridge and to know you’re getting the proper anneal straight away. And both Alex and Matthew Findlay are great guys and will help you immediately and the best they can. I’ve had several conversations with Matthew. They’re a couple of real genuine guys that have done a lot to simply help the shooting community and provide more he equipment that actually produces the best results for the reloader.

Alex is very honest about his opinions, he even put it in writing on his website:



The part that ticks people off is when the whole sentence is posted:



For some reason there's always a salt-bather who gets bent out of shape when the AMP data is posted, someone inevitably claims AMP made up all their data to sell their machine, screaming ensues. Which leads me to:


Annealing Thread Life Cycle©
  1. <annealing question asked or comment made>
  2. Typical list of common procedures in responses
  3. AMP is mentioned.
  4. Dumpster Fire GIF by MOODMAN

  5. The torch-and-sockets guys laugh and drink moonshine.
  6. The AMP guys laugh and drink white wine or sip a lime and tonic to look like they're drinking. (<<< I am here 🤣 )
  7. The Annie Fluxeon guys are sitting on the curb waiting for the Brown Truck Man to come.
  8. The Annealez guys laugh and fiddle with their dial.
  9. The guys with Bench Source machines aren't here, they're cleaning their barrel after their second shot of the day, taken 3 hours after the first shot. They have 97 wind flags set up on the 100-yard line.
  10. @FEENIX blocks someone
  11. @ButterBean accidently posts "use a faster powder" because he thought this was Page 137 of the Absolute Hammer load data thread. The guy who asked the question he was responding to couldn't read the first 136 pages of that thread for some reason so he doesn't know there's no reason to use H1000 in a 6.5CM with a 97gn AH.
  12. @Zen Archery has actually killed 14 pigs while I was typing this post (he already has the full-HD thermal video on YouTube if you need a break from the annealing thread - I'm serious, watch the one where he shoots the Armadillo)
  13. It dies down for a week or three....
  14. .... then someone says "just use a torch and socket", thankfully not starting their own thread to restart the cycle in full.

Y'all might as well laugh about it, no one is getting out of life alive.
I have to wait until my 2 Dec appt, but I want what you had for a drink when you wrote this response.

Just post it here >>> https://www.longrangehunting.com/threads/its-a-whiskey-tasting-kinda-of-night.232254/page-31

I'd be pretty nice to ya too, if I were shaken you down for $1500. Sorry, it's the moonshine talking. ;)

Same concept as when I hear guys sing Brian and Steve at Hammer Bullets praises, I suppose 🤷🏼‍♂️. They’re only nice too because they’re trying to sell a product to you, right? Must be the bourbon talking 😉.

Try to build your own AMP for cheaper, and create a business, and charge whatever a fair price would be to you, and make enough to make it all worth it. I’ll bet you won’t be able to do it for less, or much less. Just throwing that out there, for whatever it may or may not be worth.

I came up with a revolutionary method using a torch and socket. My studies show that it is absolutely the finest method of annealing brass. It's so spectacular that the "Six Minute Abs" people are going to sponsor my yt video.
Hey, there's nothing wrong with moonshine!

That's a new one on me. All it's ever done to me was make my head hurt the next day. LOL
