So I brought a Annealeez a couple of weeks ago, but of course it took a couple weeks to get and should be here in a day or so. I’ve already sized 100 pieces for a match this weekend and was wondering it's ok to anneal it after sizing it.

Oh boy I can’t wait to hear the responses with this question..... :cool:

How about you load and shoot your brass for the match, and then next time you anneal before you size it.....

But you have a new toy, I understand......,got any junk brass to play around with it before you do your match brass?

Have fun and good luck!

As mentioned above, I'd say it best to anneal before you size as that tends to produce less spring back and a little easier to get consistent neck tension.

Also, after annealing, be sure to clean the inside of the neck as oxidized residue on that inside surface creates a lot of friction leading to very inconsistent seating depth.

I think most people will tell you it’s like wiping before you shit.. I’m no reloading wizard but I believe it’s the point of consistent shoulder bump and neck tension.

Yes, but don’t be surprised if the accuracy goes to shit.
