    We are currently using a .251 neck bushing for the .254 reamer. This particular gun groups exceptional.

    Need to measure the thickness of the neck first. Double that plus bullet dia of 224 for you to use a 251 bushing and hold the bullet in your neck will have to mike at least 14 anything over 14 you will have to turn necks. 14+14=28+2(clearance around bullet)+224(bullet dia)=254 take clearance away and leaves 252 less 1 for neck tension and that leave 251 bushing size if neck measures less than 14 251 bushing won't work need to go to a small one. I shoot a 6 and 22 br all mine are tight neck and brass is made from rem7br stuff and those neck mike 12/13 before I turn them I kind of think your going to need maybe a 248/249 bushing you can go to Sinclair I think they have bushing in half sizes. Well good luck
