Thread: Annealing SST and Interbond

  1. #1

    Annealing SST and Interbond

    Stumbled across this from Nathan Foster


    The following video details how to anneal an SST or Interbond projectile as described amongst the cartridge texts
    of the knowledge base. Annealing can produce two benefits. In the first instance, it helps the frontal area of both the SST and IB to swage back after expansion, the frontal area folds back against the bullet shank and the reduced frontal area allows for much deeper penetration- but without sacrificing wound channel diameters.

    In the words of the great man himself I simply don't believe it!
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Would the metal really get hot enough to be annealed???

    This guy is having a laugh, what an absolutely load of bo**ocks, all he has done is warmed the bullet over a candle. The heat needed to change the structure of the bullet jacket would be substantially more, it would have melted the polymer tip and lead core before it made any difference in the hardness of the jacket

    That's exactly my thoughts.

    Mine too, not hot enough to affect the grain structure of the metal.
