    AMP annealer MK2 codes for a few of my cals

    I know this is fairly new but im putting these out there to see if anyone has had any similar results using the "Analyse mode"
    Quite an interesting thing to do eh. If i had a single round look more annealed than the others in a batch, sure enough it would measure to be thinner in the neck wall than the others, and only by 1thou.

    Im hoping to see if anyone has done a .223 in the new mk2 program?

    You will also get differences fired neck/versus sized neck.

    Here's some early playing I did when I got my machine -
    CAC 308W. Necks 14 thou IIRC. Ran analyse on 4 cases and got 0150, 0151, 0149, 0151. Asked AMP Alex about these results and he said pretty good.
    223R Hornady range pickups. Didn't measure necks. 0128, 0129.
    223 F-C Range pickups. Didn't measure necks. 0128.
    308W F-C Range pickups. 0160. (Different to CAC.) @Dead is better

    Have since done 7.5x55 SR, 308W Lapua Palma (0160), 6mm BR Lapua, 6.5x47L Lapua.
    The 7.5x55 SR I only have a limited number of cases and didn't want to sacrifice any. I looked up the standard settings and did 2 cases at std, then 2 cases just either side of std. Alex checked them using his Vickers tester and we settled on a std value for those.

    My values may be different to what others may get if there are slight machine to machine differences, although if there are I would have thought they would be minor.

    All brass annealed in their fired unsized state.
    The 308 Palma brass I selected a case to analyse in the middle of the weight range.
    Sacrificing brass hurts but interestingly the last 2 lots off Lapua I got had 101 cases in the box. (Maybe someone got 99..)

    Here's my codes so far:

    I've noticed that I'm missing a few so need to update my list. I write the code on the sacrificed case in vivid and keep it as a reference

    If it's not a first round hit you need to practice more

    I was trying not to lose any 7mmRM Sako brass (for my good mate) so i went in with the lowest Hornady setting with that thickness. It did not seem to anneal much at all, so i went up to the higher setting and it worked noticeably better.

    Lapua 260 0170 which seems to be common consistency from what I've read.
    R-P 223 brass necked to 6x45 0125

    Brother was annealing Lapua 260 using 0170 which was working perfectly. Had a couple of RP cases in with it by accident. Destroyed them as their code is 0141. Definitely precise

    Gotta break a few eggs to make an omelette!
    I wonder if there is a noticeable difference if you march an intact sequence of load development brass across the annealer. If the start loads are softer than the hottest.
