    Got me a new Redding type S bushing die I am waiting to try out on my .223 brass. Looks like a rain out in the Cotton Patch today so maybe I can hit the bench later. I ordered some Imperial applocation media as well.
    Just some more toys to play with.

    I haven't used bushing dies before but look forward to your opinion after you get to try it.

    I ordered the .245 bushing with the die and may have to get a .246 as the .245 seems to give me a .218 finished neck I.D. which works out to a .006 interferemce fit and I was wanting a .004 fit. This was on Hornady brass and I didn't try it on the Winchester brass yet.

    I use the same type of die on my 22-250 loads with a .251 bushing for a .004 fit.
    Dang bushings are about $8.00 a pop though. But they sure are nice dies.
