I don’t have $1400 to drop on an AMP machine so I have an annealeez machine. It’s a one torch set up. Based on almost every video I’ve seen with this machine the case should be in the flame for roughly 5 seconds. I have always done this but I just noticed something. With my Alpha brass I have what looks almost like a “burnt spot” on the neck. It does not do this with my Hornady brass or Federal brass. I did this in the dark and the cases just barely had a glow of red when they came out of the flame. Some people say no glow and some people say you want the glow. The brass was tumbled in rice for 3 hours before annealing. The last time I annealed these cases I did not see the dark blackish spot. Is there any way yall could look at these pictures and tell me if I just screwed up my cases? Please don’t annihilate me for my ignorance and lack of knowledge.
