You should both be ashamed of yourselves. It's bad for the environment, leeches into the soil, and poisons the fish. (I made that up)

Pick it up, and make sh#! out of it!





Re: Thoughts on Annealing Nickel Cases

Postby Sig » Fri Sep 27, am

I confess, I have made BO cases from nickel cases. I actually thought that I would make ALL my BO cases from nickel cases but that quickly fell to the wayside. When you cut the nickel cases, you will notice how hard they are as it obviously takes a bigger toll on your saw then the brass cases. When sizing, use lube and when you think you have lubed enoughuse some more. I have stuck more nickel cases in a die then I can count. I did get good at using my case removal kit I had assembled. But it gets old quickly. I don't anneal my cases and found that the necks split much quicker on nickel cases then they do on brass cases. Now that I only use brass cases for BO, I may see 5 split necks in a year and that is after a lot of shooting. I discard cases for loose primer pockets in a much higher percentage compared to split necks (brass cases).

So to conclude, can you do it? Yep, and you might find that you like the extra effort it takes to do so. I did not and now only load my BO in brass cases and recycle any nickel cases into reloaded

Good luck!

I just bought a tempilstik degree stick and plan to try my hand at annealing brass. Does anyone have experience annealing nickel-plated brass? Is there any difference when working with this type of brass?

Nothing special.. might turn blue. Spin it on a drill with some ooo steel wool and it'll look real purty.

Note that if you anneal your nickel plated necks, you are hardening the nickel plating. It can be harder than many alloyed steels before you anneal and can increase is hardness as much as 2 fold by precipitation hardening. I sure wouldn't want those tiny little hard pieces inside the neck getting embedded in the bullet's copper surface and then fire lapping my nice shiny barrel.

Precipitation hardening happens when certain metals are heat "soaked" for a lengthy period of time. The cartridge case neck annealing process involves very short duration heating. I have annealed Weatherby nickel cases -several hundred- to neck them to Wtby and they have worked well. I have also annealed quite a few 7Mag nickel when necking them for Norma brass. That too has worked well. I have had no trouble with nickel cases either before or after annealing when using RCBS, Redding, or Hornady dies.

Get cash, what else is needed for a young twenty-year-old guy. With his face, of course, they did not take the waiters, but they were happy to wash the dishes and clean up the waste. There were few whites willing to do this kind of work. This was the South, and African Americans or Mexicans were not liked here. Fast food was the most run-of-the-mill establishment, but it was open around the clock.

In one corner, two young girls were kissing passionately, and in the other corner, two more determined guys were lying in. Position 69 and sucking each other's flesh. One man bent a very young girl onto the table and lifted her skirt up and began to have her in the ass. On the stage, in the meantime.

Now she was riding me, and portrayed an Amazon rider. We ended up together. Ptotm was screaming twice when I sucked Anechkin's clitoris, and in response she drove her fur and her tender tongue over my penis. We agreed to meet more. Often for "intimate shooting", which smoothly turned into a mutual orgasm.

From above, the view was better and sometimes the gaze stopped on one or another passenger (usually a girl), stopped for a moment, and went on. Probably, this is how my "underground journey" would have passed if she had not entered the salon. My dispassionate gaze stopped on her for a second, appreciated.

How it had happened before, and went further.
