    Thanks Dave. No offence taken. 'retired' explained exactly how the use of even a simple word (dog) can have such a different meaning in various parts of the world.

    Here are the types of dogs that I hunt here in the Australian bush - this brute was a sheep killer and the farmer that owned the property was very greatful that we nailed it. Our national association (SSAA) works with farmers to give a positive aspect to shooting sports https://farmerassist.com.au/

    So lets get back to neck annealing as it's use is quite justified to prevent work hardened brass necks from splitting. I found it necessary to neck anneal my .223 cases after 4 reloads btw. Check out the manufacturer's annealing on the type of (ADI) brass that I use http://nzgunsandhunting.co.nz/index....=85&news_id=71.

    Bill - 40 years ago we heated the necks with a torch and tipped them over into the water. Not very scientific or a very good thing to do with your rifle cases. As you well know, such cases were not a good thing for Benchrest shooting. These days, you can buy an annealing machine that will do it right...every case. Expensive??....yes but if you've got a little cash layin' around that you can spend while still keeping the lights on it's a good buy.

    Result, shiny clean cases and my tumbler is now redundant.

    Rinse in clean water and put them on a tray into the oven set on dead low for 15 minutes

    I use just a pinch of "Lemi-Shine" (dishwasher additive) with stainless media, probably work about the same in an ultrasonic.

    I use a teaspoon of dry citric acid crystals (from the cake baking section of the local supermarket) in about 1/2 pint of warm water.

    If you already own an ultrasonic cleaner it's well worth a try. The results really nicely surprised me.

    I justified the purchase by putting SWMBO's rings and jewellery in for a test run and it made her very happy - Used a squirt of dishwashing liquid for that test).

    I put a couple patches with rubbing compound in my tumbler. Leaves a shiny finish. Sometimes do paper-towels like you do.
