6.5x284 Lapua brass question

Does anyone know what the neck diameter typically is for a loaded piece of 6.5x284 lapua brass? I am wanting to buy redding type s dies and wondering what bushing I will need.

Thanks

Lapua brass, amax 140 : 0,2945

lapua brass, berger 140 VLD: 0,2495

I use the .293 bushing; the .292 would also be ok and hold the bullets a little tighter. I would suggest you buy the .292 and .293, and if you want, also a .291

Sinclair will send small orders (under 12 oz.) by USPS at a reduced shipping rate. If you wish to measure your brass before ordering the bushings, you can do so without paying a big penalty in shipping costs. It may be cheaper than buying a bushing you will never use.

Re: 6.5x284 Lapua brass question

I just checked the loaded neck diameter on several of the 100+ that I have loaded. They are all .293, Lapua unturned brass with 140gr Bergers. I am using a .292 bushing, it is a single shot so I do not need a lot of neck tention. When I set this rifle up I ordered a .291, .292, .293, and a .294 all steel, no Titanium Nitride. If you find you do not need one or two you can probably sell them here and only be out a couple of bucks.
