i have seen that if the seating stem gets hung up in the neck guide bushing on hornady dies. disassemble and make sure seating stem moves freely inside the guide bushing and make sure the guide bushing slides on the case neck.

I am new to reloading as you can tell from my questions
Brass neck od with berger .264 bullet in is .290
Brass neck od just after pulling .264 bullet .290-291.5
Brass neck od after sizing ADG brass for 6.5 max with .290 neck bushing about 2 months ago .2885-.2895
inside neck measured with calipers the best I could was .258-.260
One last question if the bullets are .264 why do they measure.262

can someone help me with this problem 6.5 max Berger 156 .290 neck bushing hornady micro seater bought from Rich
Take the sizing die apart, and take off the mandrel that is on it, and thread on the other mandrel that came with the die set. Then size one (taking your time and ease the neck up into the bushing a little bit at a time, backing it down and back up a little bit at a time ( until it has completely sized the neck). Then go to the seating die, and you should be fine.

So what does it mean when the bullet will not go in a fired round
If a bullet will not fit in a fire case it could be a couple things, one being you don't have enough clearance in your chamber and you need to turn down the case necks a little bit thinner. Could also be very stiff brass that needs to be annealed or could be a very dirty chamber that is not allowing the brass to expand.

6.5 bushing die with 308 size brass wont work!
The hole size is too small.

Will a .323 bushing go in the 6.5 max die
I believe the bushing will fit in the die but the opening in the dies where the neck fit thru is only about .300" wide on the 6.5 Max die.
