really this is just a suggestion only, but I always recommend Fred Sinclairs book on Precision Reloading. For the bushing diameter I simply measure the bullet diameter, then add in the sized diameter and shrink it .003" for starters. But you can't! So you need to know the wall thickness doubled, and add that to the bullet diameter. Then remove three thousandths (or four thousandths) from the total figure. Later on you might want to try neck shaving, but for I wouldn't

My evolution as a handloader and shooter must be destined. I recognized that title from a bunch of books I inherited from my father in-law so I have been scouring the pages in between diaper changes. Thanks a lot Gary I will post pics when this thing gets off the ground.
