    Keep us posted so others may learn from what you discover Bill.

    I was extremely low tech when I first started annealing using a shell holder a battery drill and a canned gas burner I sure junked allot of cases as I went by the blue ring that appears when annealed correctly (303 cases) its only a split second from good to junk I got it fairly close but the results more often than not were not the best.
    So saved for a year and got the AMP machine as when your feeding 3 F class rifles, a full bore rifle, a 308 field class rifle and 5 303's all banging away throwing lead the cases just pile up.

    Beware of Accurate 2200 powder. Do not deviate from published data by Accurate. This was originally a surplus powder for the 7.62x39. Do not exceed publish information on it as the pressure can jump with just a small amount of powder increase. I used it to load .223 with a 55 gr FMJ bullet. I was at 21 grains when I started to get primer failures in my SP1 Colt. Nice holes in the Winchester primers. The load was 2 grains UNDER published max. So start with starting loads and increase slowly.

    Thank you for the heads-up. I've bought Hodgdon H4895 and IMR 4064 so start working uploads using Hornady Brass, 168 gr. BTHP MatchKings and Barnes 175 gr. LRX bullets.
