"SEHunter, if your loaded round case mouths measure .256" at their smallest, get a bushing with an inside diameter of .255" or .254". You typically need bushings about 1 to 3 thousandths smaller than a loaded round diameter. For 22 caliber cases, only 1 or 2 thousandths smaller is good enough as they don't have enough recoil to make harder neck grip on bullets a requirement."
the measurement i got of .255 to .256 was the mouth of a fired case that i have not resized or loaded yet. Most of the loaded cases i have on hand are about .252 at the mouth. Maybe instead of .248 and .249, i should go with the .249 and a .250
What is the difference between the high dollar dies and the ones in the $30 to $50 range? The Redding i have my eye on is around $50. About to price the RCBS.
