Bill you did everything right and I won't anneal any cases. Only thing that wasn't allowed for was neck tension. You might of got enough neck tension with a neck thickness of .0115" as clearance is normally .002" when you increase that number to .003" you decrease your bushing size.

neck thickness .023 .022 .024
bullet dia .257 .257 .257

total .280 .279 .281

clearance .02 .278 .277 .279

I guess I knew the answer all along its just that I couldn't belive I goofed that bad. Even had the Redding Rep working with me on figuring it . Just never figured on needing that much neck tension is all. OH well too much work and too little time hunting.
