Re: question on tight neck chambers

I would not recommend a 262 neck on a 6br if you are intending to use Lapua brass. I have a 6brimproved on a 265 neck which means my brass must be turned down to 263 and it is a nightmare making it that thin. Turning .004" of each side of the tough as nails Lapua brass was hell on equipment, nerves, and the clock.

My other 6 br is a 269 neck and it is a breeze to make and shoots just as good.

Goodgrouper, what kind of neck turner do you use? Normally, with a good sharp cutter, turning Lapua is like cutting butter.

Your post is exactly right! My tight necked chamber is .250" dia. tight necked 22-250. Turning to a .012" wall thickness gives .002" total clearance. I've neck turned Lapua, Remington & one other brand of brass & they have all cleaned up with a .012" wall.
I can't imagine any brass that would need to be turned to a .009" wall in order to completely clean up with a perfect neck wall without any thin spots.

For a .262 chamber neck, loaded neck diameters could measure .261 if chosen.
In that example, the bushing .002" smaller(recommended) is .259".
.262 is not very common with 6br.

I get the feeling you don't understand this well enough though.
Tight neck chambers are managed with more advanced reloading than common. You can tell by the sentiment in replies right here that some are afraid of tighter clearances, and/or advanced reloading.
It's just not something you can take a big jump into with success.
