Annealing Made Perfect

Annealing Made Perfect

The AMP machine, well, it just makes everything better. More accurate results with less fuss.

It’s not just about the machine. Sure, the nature of induction annealing means that things get done in a much more controlled, repeatable manner. But for me, the real value in this system is the guys at AMP taking all the brass (even yours) and testing them on their lab grade equipment to identify the right amount of heat and therefore annealing required to bring it to the same hardness, every time.

Is it worth it?

Yes, the unit is nearly worth twice that of other, gas-based units out there. It also isn’t as fast as my Auto-Anneal – however, if it is the ultimate performance you are after – it is certainly worth considering. Also – made right here in NZ!

Especially if you are looking at multiple cartridges – it may just pay for itself in a reduction of setup time.

Shoot straight(er).
