Recommendations for annealing setup

What's being used, and recommended ?

I'm looking at annealing my 260Rem, 6.5x55, 7x57, and .284 Brass.

Not in huge quantities, probably approx. 50 cases at a time.

Cheers

Drill and socket. It is not rocket science. Old timers used to use their fingers and a candle.

As Sako said, there's nothing magic about it - fingers and a candle are all I have used over the past fifty something years.

Pretty handy when the lights go out too.

All I do is shove a pin in a piece of dowel through the flash hole from the rear of the case and spin the neck over the flame until the base gets 'finger' hot, then dump it in a cup of water.
I anneal every third shot and traditionally get 20 reloads in my hunting rifles before retiring that case - and that only because I've trimmed that case two or three times and don't want to risk 'thinning' to cause a 'separation'.

Cheers guys. Just bought a propane torch.

Your comments etc were much appreciated.

A hell of a lot cheaper than one of those fancy setups !!
