    I'm about to order a set of Redding bushing dies for a .223 that is being built. I will be using Lapua brass to get started with. I will be ordering the dies, brass, bullets and bushing in one order (hopefully).

    Without knowing the neck thickness of the Lapua .223 brass I will have to rely on you guys for some help. Assuming about .003" of neck tension; what bushing will I need when using the Lapua brass?

    Or; if anyone has some recently bought .223 Lapua brass around, could you check the neck wall thickness for me?
