After watching the video, the following should be noted:
- Choose the correct shell-holder for the calibre you have. See our description below.
- No part of the annealing system should go into the flame.
- See to the correct immersion depth of the cartridge.
- Torque the shell-holder to a setting that prevents it from spinning. The weight of the cartridge should not cause it to fall over.
- The correct time is 4 to 5 seconds for the larger calibres (.22-250 and larger). For the small .22 Hornet, .223 and .222 cartridges, the correct time is 3 seconds.
- Important: The red neck on the thermal photos is only to calibrate the heat correctly. The neck never turns red (cherry-pink).
There are 3 different shell-holders that cover most of the rifle-calibres. Contact us if you are unsure.
