Hello all! I recently bought an AMP annealer and wow what a difference with my 6.5-300 and 338-378! Im blown away at the benefits from annealing after each firing. If any Canadians are interested im more then willing to anneal your brass. I can do any case with the 338-378 (30-378, 378, 416 etc) and 6.5-300 (300, 340, etc)

Yes, I agree that frequent annealing seems to reduce ES and really improve accuracy and of course case life.

All reports indicate that the AMP is a great machine, but they are very costly here and I still use a unit with a flame.
I shoot cases with a belt because I feel the other cartridges need to pull their trousers up.

Costly for sure. If I were to purchase A Mark II here in the US (distributor in Alabama) with tax it would cost just over $1500 dollars. (don't know if the distributor makes deals on them, or if its MSRP only)

Here in Canada, I paid little over 2k with 1 pilot, shipping and the tax.

I finally broke down and bought one awhile back. For me itís a no brainer as much as I shoot and as expensive as good quality brass is. Very well made machine. Iíve seen where annealing is offered for a small fee with the amp which to me is also a testament to how well they are built. I would recommend depriming and clean before hand to help keep the gunk out.
