DI water is dirt cheap. Why introduce an uncertainity to a chemical/industrial process ? Heating the brass does open it to all sorts of chemical invasions that can change its characteristics, IMO. Also another good reason to approach shooting brass barreled antiques/repros with a good deal of trepiditation, too !

Not being a metallurgist, can't offer any concrete evidence/suggestions ! As a hairy-knuckled service rep of some experience I can relate I've observed enough incidents of heat/contaminents/alloys to err on the side of caution. >MW

They had an as new unit that was used by someone at Long Range Hunting for an article on that site, I saved about $85 on it. I'm going torch shopping this weekend
