Don't tell the 45-90 and 50-90 brass, it doesn't know.

I used to do the drill & torch.
Then I read where a guy used a candle and turned the case between his fingers. That way you have a better idea of how hot the case is getting. When it gets hot, before it burns your fingers, drop the case on a wet towel.
I tried this and the color on the cases looks much closer.
