Wrong bushing size

So today I resized some cases with the wrong bushing . I used a bushing .004 smaller instead of .002. Are these cases ruined or can I go ahead and reload them?

Load them up and shoot them. Then make a change next loading if you want to.

Re: Wrong bushing size

If you are running a Maximum load you might want to reduce your charge a .5 gr as the increased neck tension can raise pressures.
