Annealing Under the Microscope

While many of us just prefer to load and shoot, or better yet ‘buy’ and shoot, to the precision reloader annealing their brass is part of the process.  From the manufacturer of the Annealing Made Perfect Induction Annealing Machine, here is an in-depth technical write-up on their recent research where “We decided it was time to revisit the metallurgy of what we do to find the empirical evidence (if any) of the benefits of correct cartridge case neck and shoulder annealing. Specifically, is our annealing absolutely repeatable and consistent, and if so, does that result in more consistent “neck tension” for our customers?”
