I just bought an AMP annealer it is a gen 1. I bought the Valkyrie pilot and a 6GT pilot. Started annealing the GT brass and I was using the code they gave me. When pulling out the brass I was noticing some spots on it that looked like burn spots. Decided to change brass and calibers. Used the Valkyrie pilot and the code for it. That stuff come out looking perfect. No spots all even heat.
so my question is do I start using a lower code number or are the weird hot spots nothing to worry about. Sure hate to ruin good alpha brass on my miss happenings.
thoughts would be great.

That's interesting never seen that. Measure the neck thickness and try a lower setting. Who makes the brass?

This is all alpha 6GT brass. They gave me a code of 93. That was way to much. I turned it down to 90 and I’m still getting this. Not sure what to do. What’s right or what’s wrong. I can keep going down I guess, but when is to far down to little? Like I said first amp annealer so here I’m new at this. Do these AMP annealers go bad? Is that even an option?

Oil or burnt powder residue maybe?

I check mine with tempilaq every time I anneal
I tumbled these for two hours in wet stains steal media. Rinsed them as well till it was clear water then dried them in the dehydrator for about another two hours.

The Standard 93 code is for Lapua 6GT brass. There is no way to know exactly what code Alpha 6GT brass should be. 93 is a place to start though. Best options are to get AZTEC and use to determine code or send in your brass to the AMP guys.
