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?

    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.

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

    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.
