AMP Annealing Unit – MARK II
Annealing Made Perfect is the only name which describes this unit properly. Annealing of cartridge case necks and shoulders has previously been a ”hit and miss” episode for most reloaders who have been doing annealing. Until now!
This machine is now the No. 1 choice of all serious reloaders all around the world. For the last 4 years been one of our BRT top selling products
NB: Please remember to purchase any cartridge pilots which you also require. Pilots are sold separately.
- This machine is a pre-programmed, fully calibrated, induction case annealer.
- An induction annealer which produces exact and repeatable case neck hardness every time. No flame.
- Change from one cartridge type to another in seconds
- A solidly built, reliable easy to operate machine to anneal your cases every reload.
- Mark II version does all cartridge cases from 17 Hornet to and including the 50cal BMG
- This Mark II machine comes pre loaded with the new AZTEC software to self analize your own cases for the absolute codes to match brass metallurgy.
- There is a range of special cartridge pilots available to set the case in the correct position in the machine for annealing (purchased separately)
- No guesswork, no temperature pastes. Just select the program after carrying out ANALYSIS within AZTEC mode.
- Fit the pilot in the machine and start annealing. Fast and easy.
- Anneal your case each and every time you reload.
- A special shellholder grip tool (Brass) is included with the unit. NB: You will need to use your regular reloading press type shellholders within this grip tool.
- Consistent case neck hardness means more consistent velocity which usually means tighter groups, closer velocity spreads and cases which reload and last longer.
- All temperature time settings have been laboratory verified using micro-Vickers hardness testing equipment which allows precise neck hardness testing.
- Induction annealing means no gas and not even a hot element. Magnetic flux passes through the case neck where heat is created.
- There is no need to quench and importantly the case head remains way below annealing temperature. NB: The colour is irrelevant in evaluating annealing.
- Units supplied with 240v Australian power cable and also a USB lead which can be used to connect the unit to a computer for future updates.
- Choose the special pilots which you need separately. Many pilots handle a ”family” or cartridges of the same length and body. For example #11 pilot does 243win, 260rem, 7-08, 308win, 338win.
NB. Suggestions: This machine is certainly for the serious reloader. It is an expensive machine and possibly beyond the resources of many reloaders, but experience has shown that a group of friends or club members collectively buying a machine to share can work out quite effectively.
NB. The AMP annealing machine and associated cartridge pilots are for annealing the case neck and shoulder area of EMPTY and UNPRIMED brass cartridge cases as per the manufacturers list. We recommend that even fired primers are removed from cases prior to annealing.
WARNING: USE OF STAINLESS STEEL TUMBLING MEDIA. If you are using Stainless Steel pins or any other metallic tumbling media to clean your cases you must be sure to remove all media from each case before annealing. This should go without saying as the same thing applies for accidentally reloading and firing a cartridge with some media still left in a case. But any metallic media left in a case for annealing could damage the machine and void your warranty.
