223 Bushing Size

Anyone out there use bushing dies for a no neck turn .223 remington? I thought I sized mine properly but it is definitely too small. My loaded necks measure .247-9" and the bushing I'm using is .244 I'm guessing a .245 or .246 The brass is getting shaved down the neck then when the bullet is seated I can see the bullet expanding the neck back out down to the point where the base of the bullet sits. Can anyone say over worked brass?

Re: 223 Bushing Size

if your neck is 0.247 on a loaded round then you need to use a 0.245 or 0.246 bushing. Less neck tension for a bolt gun (0.246 bushing)- more for an AR (0.245 bushing).
