ATTN: 7mm Rem. Mag. reloaders

I'm about to start loading for my 7mm Rem. mag. What I need to know is since I will be purchasing a set of bushing dies, what is the most common sized bushing used? I have never fired the rifle, therefore I have no cases to measure for myself. I figured you guys could save me alot of footwork. I'm after about .001 or .002 in neck tension. But will likely purchase several sizes. Thanks guys..

    Why don't you start by measuring a factory round (OD at the neck) and start with that bushing.

    Thats easy, because I dont have any, and don't really plan to purchase any since I'm an avid reloader..

    Dont take that the wrong way, not trying to be a smart a@3 or anything.

    Thanks guys! That will get me started on the right foot...

    Are any of you using H-1000? I have quite a bit on hand so I figured I would start there with either a 168gr. Berger or maybe a 160gr. Accubond.

    I'd suggest you're avid at reloading -backwards, except you had to ask us how to do that...
    You need to measure brass in-hand, so you can learn what bushing is needed.
