What size bushing for .338 Edge/Bertram brass

I have 50 pieces of Bertram brass. When a 300 smk is seating the case neck thickness is .364 would I use a .361 or .362 bushing? Also where can I find said bushing in stock.

    Really only .001 smaller? Not doubting you but I always thought you wanted .002-.003 of "Neck tension"

    I like tighter necks to hold bullets better. Especially if the gun has a magazine or loaded with the bullets in the rifling. I don't like the bullets to move from recoil or get stuck in the barrel. In benchrest shooting; most of the time more tension gives better accuracy at 1000. I would buy a .361 and a .362 and try the .361 first and see how the gun shoots. Matt
