I've got .294 loaded rounds in my 6.5-284. I started off using a .292 bushing and found I got less runout by using the .293. I've seen this in some other cartridges too. IMO, so long as we keep TIR to .003 or less we'll never see the difference on a target. But when it starts getting over .006 we can expect accuracy issues, especially with tight neck guns.

If you're going to anneal every 3rd firing, then work hardening your necks shouldn't be a concern IMO, even with excessive sizing.

Re: 284 Win bushing.

I have the hornady concentricity guage so i can straighten the loaded rounds to .003 or less if need be.

Thanks for your help!

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Re: 284 Win bushing.

You guys were right on!! .313 loaded diameter, 310 bushing would be perfect, i would know for sure if they were perfect if Midway knew the difference between $89 6.5x284 dies and $210 284 win dies .
