I've had the Ballistic Edge 360 for several years now and really like the machine. I'm running it with three torches mounted on a propane bottle. I anneal just about all my brass except semi-auto pistol. A few years back I decided to take better care of the brass because even if you can afford it, who knows if your going to be able to buy it when if you need it.

Here is a video I made for some users that asked how the temperature should be set. It shows the unit in use.



let's see; I anneal 218 Bee, 25-20 Win, 30 Carbine, 300 Savage, 308 Win, 30-30 Win, 32-20 Win, 7.62x39, 32 Win Spl, 357 Mag, 38 Spl, 35 Rem, 375 Win, 38-55 Win, 41 Mag, 44 Mag, 444 Marlin, 454 Casull, 45 Colt, 45-70 Govt, and 480 Ruger. I shoot a lot so I'm always reloading something. All the brass gets annealed. Yes, it does make a difference in the usable life of each case.

Looks like a good alternative to the Giraud annealing machine with a lower price point.

If you are planning to anneal 300 BLK Out, then you will need a different set of rollers, and it finiky with that round.

It works great for 223 and 308.

Note, the torch placement/attachment is a pain in the butt. This is one area that needs improvement.
