I am still trying to obtain some proper 7.7 brass, but if that fails, then I will make some, as I am knee deep in -06 brass.

Yes, good point, I did intend to do that, I watched a feller annealing brass a while back, he used a cordless drill with a 1/4" short extension and a 5/8" deep socket, he could drop the case in the end of the socket, then run the drill and spin the case in front of the torch, then when it heat marked, drop it in the water bucket by just tipping the drill,,,,it was pretty efficient.

If you want to anneal cases with a torch hold the base with your bare hand. You'll drop it before the base gets hot enough to soften. It would be easy to overheat the case using the method described above. It doesn't matter if you water cool or not.

Watch Graf's website. They have PRVI 7.7x58 from time to time at a reasonable price.

Thats for sure, he spun the neck in the flame, and when the heat mark got to the shoulder, he dumped it. The commercial annealing machines heat the necks to a dull glow before dropping them.
