Wauwatosa, Wisconsin –-(AmmoLand.com)- After several firings your brass may start to become brittle and drastically shorten your case life.

Annealing your cases will soften the case and prevent brittle brass.

In this video ammosmith.com demonstrates the annealing process using tools found around the house. By chucking a 12mm deep socket into a cordless drill you can evenly and safely apply the proper heat to the case using a propane torch.

Once the brass is heated properly simply dump it into your water bucket.

    I've been thinking about getting a 357herrett rifle barrel for my Encore, but, I have a question. Can 30 30 brass be formed to 357 herrett specs without fire forming? As you can probably guess I'm new to this. All my hunting has been with a muzzle loader or shotgun.

    Why does the shoulder turn blue and not the neck? I want to anneal the neck because they are splitting.

    Excellent video. Thanks
