    I think it's just the facts.

    It will be interesting to see what Ballistic Recreations says about this. Has Ballistic Recreations has ever provided independent proof that their salt product actually does work?

    Interesting read. What's missing in the article is a comparison of the same hardness tests done on the same brass using the AMP. All that is shown is a "target" hardness curve, which for all we know could be an unachievable theoretical ideal. Their own separate article on annealing states a target nominal neck hardness of 120 HV, which the salt bath appears to get very close to.

    I've no doubt that the AMP is likely the best annealing method, especially for competitive pros, but I'm not yet convinced that the salt bath or torch/drill/socket method doesn't provide "good enough" results for the recreational shooter at a fraction of the cost.

    Torch and drill works for me, no way to measure, but neck tension seems consistent, brass life is good, accuracy good, I sacrificed a case, cheapest way I found. I've never heard of salt, will have to do some googling.

    This is a link that I found on Gunnutz that someone that sells them did. Maybe the owner?

    Hi Mark, are you still offering to anneal brass?

    Cheers
