Gents, I hope this is helpful to some of you. I found it to provide the answers that I needed, but I'm also pretty new to this environment.

I asked Starline for guidance on using their Basic Grendel Brass to be form 6mm ARC. My follow-up question was answered. The included file is attached.

Mark,

Here is a great article on annealing. I would suggest trying to only go a 1/4"-3/8" below where the shoulder will be when annealing for 6mm ARC. The ARC has very little body taper so it doesn't need too much below the shoulder.

As was I. The first response missed the mark. So in essence, the body annealing that I've been looking into is intended to soften the brass just below where the new shoulder will be. That's what I needed to know. I would have ruined the brass by annealing just above the case head...which all will agree is a mistake. I suppose a better term would be 'upper body annealing'.

When I opened that pdf and saw the name Ken Light, I was immediately reminded of this article You are being redirected...
There was a time that I owned one of his machines but I tired of the gas-bottle setup and shifted my allegiance to the induction process - AMP.
It appears to me that the white paper is the same materials without pictures or specifics on his annealing machine. Good to know I can find it online if I misplace my printed copy. Thanks for sharing.
