Automated Cartridge Case Annealing Machine

*Gasp* it’s beautiful…

The machine can handle rifle cartridges from .223 all the way up to .50BMG, you just need to switch out a couple of the parts.

They start at $435 and are available at Giraud Tool – HERE

I love how the brass looks like it’s alive when the pickup wheel is rotating.

What is the purpose of annealing the brass?

All case necks are annealed.

The annealer allows a reloader to maintain their cases for uniform case neck tension and prevent work hardening of the case mouths from repeated resizing and firing in a efficient and timely manner.

So it’s restoring the flexibility of the brass, so the case lets go of the bullet instead of splitting?

Just seeing if I understood it right, thanks.

got mine right after Giraud got back from Camp Perry, they rock

tsn4 annealing brass helps it last longer (more loading cycles) by fixing the work hardening that occurs as it is fired and resized, it also helps uniform neck tension which helps with accuracy.

Poppy it is more so in person.

I’m still just going to use a blowtorch and a pan of water.
