    Just recieved a set of Redding type S bushing dies for an Edge.
    The rifle is new just got it from the gunsmith and ready to start to do the brass from 300 to 338
    have the .308 to 338 tapper size button. As well as the dies but no bushing as yet to be ordered.
    Question what size of a neck bushing should one start out with doing the brass for the first
    time through?
    What would be the recommed size to follow after one or two firings on the brass.
    There are no 338 Edge owners in my area that I know of, so your help is needed.
    Using Rem brass for now.
    Thoughts on lube of the inside necks, have reloaded for several years and still learning
    to date have only brushed inside the necks before loadind with a nylon bush.

    I think most guys are using a 363-366, mine was a 364 I believe. I used it from start to finish and had ten plus reloads on some. Had to swage some primer pockets but that all.
