Neck Turning Questions

I have a redding type s neck sizer for my 338 Lapua and i plan on buying a neck turning tool and i was wondering if i would need a smaller bushing to get the same neck tension that i have now

The answer is yes.

Why are you thinking of doing this? Are you using Lapua brass?

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

I suggest you try doing a few cases first and comparing the accuracy difference in non truned necks. Unless your rifle has a tight neck chamber it might not be worth the time and it could go the negative way in a loose neck chamber.

Re: Neck Turning Questions

i just want to turn off about .0005 on each side so .001 total just to help the bullet release evenly and consistantly.

Re: Neck Turning Questions

Check your rounds for run out, and if they are good, mine are within .002, then you are probably getting no benefit. If you have a chamber w/tight neck that is a different deal.

Re: Neck Turning Questions

I did check the run-out and some were at .005
