HELP WITH 6,5-284 BUSHINGS

I got the redding bushing die (fl), planing to use lapua not neck turned brass; still don´t have the rifle but neck should be a min. factory spec. .3.

WHich bushing/s would you reccomend to use with lapua brass? problem is I still don´t have any lapua brass nor loaded rounds to measure.
Thanks.

    Since it's a no-turn case,it will most likely be about .296" with a bullet seated.You will most likely using a bushing that's about .292-294. I would buy 2 or 3 bushings starting at .292,up to .294 to start.

    alg, The correct way to figure out a bushing is to measure a loaded round and then subtract 2-3 thou from that measurement. I'm not sure how thick Lapua necks are compared from other brands, but only by actually measuring the width of a loaded round can you be accurate. Then go one or two sizes plus or minus to see what holds bullet tension best and shoots better. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]
