I've never annealed but I have been wanting to start or at least give it a try. I've been reading up on the different methods of annealing such as handheld torch while spinning case, automated machine, and salt bath. A thread I recently read talked about salt bath annealing using a Lee melting pot and a fixture from Ballistic Recreations to hold the cases in the pot. It seems like a pretty inexpensive and easy way to get repeatable results. The thing that has me confused is that it says not to heat the salts above 590F or you get toxic fumes. Everything else I have read says to anneal at temps of 700-750F. Does salt bath annealing get hot enough to properly anneal cases? If it does, then what is the proper miminum temp for annealing?
