Having just recently shot a buddy's garand using his reloads, and having witnessed the splitting of quite a few case necks, the subject of annealing came up.

Now, said buddy was also fireforming brass for another gun - his new 6.5CM rifle - but he was reluctant to embrace annealing since the 6.5 brass has other problems that come up before the problems addressed by annealing arise.

Still, I think this might be of value to those that shoot other calibers and find annealing burdensome, or cost prohibitive (I haven't check out the price of this unit).

To wit: Salt bath annealing

“A return to First Principles in a Republic is sometimes caused by simple virtues of a single man. His good example has such an influence that the good men strive to imitate him, and the wicked are ashamed to lead a life so contrary to his example. Before all else, be armed!” ~ Niccolo Machiavelli
