Re: 45-70 ball loads with black powder

When I annealed the cases, I stood them straight up in a pan of water that was half way up the case. When they got hot to the touch I tipped them over in the water. The Starline brass was correct length according to my reload manual. The Hornady brass I had (since scrapped them) was a good 1/8" shorter.
