I've cut a couple rcbs fl dies and they were hardened. So you'll want a WC boring bar. Or else cut the die off at the neck with a grinder, or maybe open the neck with sandpaper/lapping compound, or...

I would've guessed around 0.1 G1. One of those Lab Radar setups would get you a good answer.

I think the barnes varmint grenade options are unleaded and work well. There are lots of PD west of you around midland, hobbs, etc.

I got my first NF after starting the local steel matches. They like to do stages with a lot of dialing--stuff like shoot a target at 1200, then 200, then 850, then 200, then 750... I've seen...

+1 on the annealing recommendation. If you still get cracks, try annealing "more" i.e. to a higher temperature. If the metal is glowing a visible dull red in low light, that is about the right...

One potential problem with a really nice/expensive rifle is you might be reluctant to use it. If accuracy is what you want, a nice barrel on a 'beater' rifle might get it done. Something that...

I would use induction--much better control than a torch. If you are getting brass already formed then you may not need to anneal for several firings. Are you getting split necks?

Induction works pretty well for the small/short stuff. It's particularly good for WSSM where with a torch you'd have to pretty much cook the whole case before the neck gets soft. There are various...

My advice for hornet loading:

The brass is thin, so it can collapse if you try to seat a bullet and the neck is bent or too small, peened over, etc. You should not need to anneal. If you just...
