Re: Fired Cartridge vs. Loaded Cartridge Neck Size?
To be honest with you, and save the frustration of waiting for the big brown UPS truck, I'd order all three. The .333", the .334" and the .335" just to make sure. I make it a practice to have at least the one above and below whatever bushing I'm using, just so that I can adjust to varibles in neck thicknesses should I accquire some more brass, or desire a little more or a little less neck tension. After all, the strong suite of the bushing dies is exactly this type of versatility. I always start with the neck OD of the loaded round, subtract .002" and then order one of each .001" in each direction. I go with the steel bushings, as they're considerably cheaper (about half) than the TiN coated. Since I F/L size, I'm lubing anyway, so the extra lubricity doesn't mean much to me.
