After watching the video, the following should be noted:

  1. Choose the correct shell-holder for the calibre you have. See our description below.
  2. No part of the annealing system should go into the flame.
  3. See to the correct immersion depth of the cartridge.
  4. Torque the shell-holder to a setting that prevents it from spinning. The weight of the cartridge should not cause it to fall over.
  5. 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.
  6. Important: The red neck on the thermal photos is only to calibrate the heat correctly. The neck never turns red (cherry-pink).
