Though my "sub caliber" project is still a few months off, hell I haven't even decided on a cartridge yet. Mostly likely it will be a 17 ackley bee. I saw in shooting times, that hornady is making a new annealing kit. I am curious what you "pros" think of this kit. I figure it would be something nice to have, but want an opinion first before I buy. Thanks.
Thanks for reminding me! I read about this kit recently but it slipped my mind. I'll see if I can get one for a review and then I'll report here.
BTW, you'll love the .17 AckBee. I'm working with one right now on my Contender. I'm getting the smallest groups ever with it (five in .30") and it has next to no recoil or blast. Cute-looking little hummer, too!

All you need to anneal brass is a tourch, a pan of water and a place with low light. I`ll bet their trying to sell you something that will cost you alot of extra money, and threr will be several things you don`t need. I guess I`m just naturally distrusting, but when I see someone introduce something to do a simple job like that I always figure it`s a waist of money, funny thing is I`m right 99 out of 100 times.

Hey Rocky, great idea. Why don't you compare it to the annealing gizmo that the Woodchuck Den sells? I think the Hornady is cheaper, but I like this review idea. Sounds like a new category coming up...... Dutch.
