Hope someone can chime in here, can you get more brass life by just neck sizing ? I`ve searched it on the web and got a thousand different answers.
I`ve took measurements of my brass before and after firing and there`s just a few thousands difference on the case size. I`m just pondering this question incase brass gets even more scarce..

apoligies in advance if this has been beat to death here...

O.B.

If you really want to extend the life of your cases, They should be annealed at least after every 3 firing. I have some 308 cases that are on their 8th reloading. I haven't used the 300 AAC BLK enough yet, but I don't want to have to make anymore cases than necessary, sooooooooo, I will studiously anneal my cases after every 3 firing. Takes only small amount of time, I've invested in a good annealing rig and Propane's relatively cheap. What's not to like?

I`ve never annealed cases..How exactly do you do it ??
