    My dummy loaded rounds measures .368" to .369" with Nosler 300 RUM brass. I assume I want a .367" bushing die?

    Hey Alan,

    I would use a bushing that is .003" smaller then the loaded round. The recoil could move the bullet in the case if fed through the magazine box. Bench rest is a different story, but for hunting guns and heavy recoil I like the extra grip and have never had an issue with accuracy.

    Use the smallest number and get a .365 or maybe the .366 if your reloads work harden and you're not annealing your brass.
