It's neat, but it sure complicates a simple job.

I know a gent who uses a propane torch and holds the base of the case until it get too hot and drops it and apparently it works..He said you can't get it too hot..?????????

How do you guys do the candle and propane torch annealing..???

While you're holding the neck/shoulder area in a low to medium flame you turn/spin the case and drop it as mentioned. You can tell if you annealed it as that portion will have a different color when finished. Works good for me and never had a problem doing it that way.

The method where you stand a deprimed case in water to a safe depth and heat the expose part red and knock them over anneals them too dead soft and then you have shoot and reload them to get them to proper hardness.

Ray, did you ever get that motorized annealer I gave you to operate correctly?


Never mistake motion for action.

It is gear drive, so that there is only one motor and no timing problems.

Have only made short tests, but works ok!

Just get an Annealing Made Perfect annealer. I have yet to meet anyone who thinks it was a waste of money. There is no way a flame or candle is as consistent, to say nothing of the time.

I find a Lyman lead pot full of my next batch of bullets makes an ideal case neck annealing setup.
