Interesting read. I knew most of that but not some of it. But I'm no professional.

Interesting. I wonder how often they turn the necks though.

Also, he didn't ask about deburring the flash hole.

I would think once would be sufficient, but if they're annealing and getting a lot of firings per case, they may clean them up occasionally.

I know a few on that list that don't turn but can understand why some do.

Forgot to ask if they lube the necks with graphite before seating bullets too.

So much voodoo out there.

I really like Precision Rifle Blog. He has lots of good information on there. I hadn't seen this article yet though, pretty interesting.

I neck turn, uniform primer pockets, and use a Chargemaster throwing charges. A friend of mine just got a Benchsource annealing machine, and he swears it has tightened things up on all his rifles. He anneals brass on everything now. He has done some for me as well, and I think and annealing machine is going to be the next piece of reloading equipment I purchase.
