Quenching them in water does not harden them, George. They are not carbon steel.
I have always quenched them in water and they anneal perfectly as long as you don't let them get too hot.
Otherwise...

Same here in BC, Dean. Have been offered ammo by farmers, but decline, saying just "happy to help out", so poisoning isn't necessary.

My thoughts as well. A nice 1 1/2 to 2 degree (at most) throat and call it done.
It's nice to be able to touch the throat with all bullets you will use.

Those cases look OK to me. If they collapse when seating the bullets, they are over annealed.

They appear to have a sort of painted on varnish that hides the grain, very similar to the M600 BRNO's of the 90's.. Looks a lot better, re-finished, Dean2.
