Annealing question

7 posts in this topic

It depends on how hard your brass is. If your brass been shot several times and full length resized a few times it will be hard. Annealing will soften the brass and help to keep consistent bullet tension. With consistent tension you get more consistent chamber pressures insuring less fluctuations in fps and usually better groups. Plus it makes your brass last a whole lot longer. As for improving your accuracy you might need glasses. :lol:

How much will it improve accuracy?
Its for case life as the neck gets harder each time you use a standard die set as the sizer makes it smaller then on removing the case the expander ball brings it back to proper size that?s why the bushing sizer die is supposed to be the Hot Ticket die set as it sizes the brass the least amount so it doesn?t work harden as much :lol: Heath what reloading books do you have?

But Heath and I both have Giraud case trimmers and you must full length resize to trim the brass. Not that you trim every time you shoot it but every so often like annealing. Annealing is really about case neck tension. :lol:
