Tom Freeman Posted February 1, 2014 Share Posted February 1, 2014 A couple years ago I bought a Giraud annealer. Every time I use it I am always impressed with how well it works. Doug's trimmer is kick butt also by the way. I anneal most precision rifle brass every 3-4 reloads. 338 Lapua every other time and 50 BMG every reload. Below is the hopper loaded up with 200-250 pcs of 6CM brass. I am using MAP gas so I can cut down the processing time. Doing batches of 500 (308, 260, 243) takes about two hours of machine time. Takes me 5 minutes to load the hopper. Using templaq, the inside of the case neck got to about 750' and the 450' zone did not extend more than 3/8 or so down below the annealed discoloration. Pics of the finished brass. From left to right. Factory Virgin Lapua 308, unannealed 6CM, annealed 6CM. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
