Durable Construction and Hand-Polished Design
The .270" neck sizing bushing is constructed from heat-treated steel, ensuring durability and a long lifespan. Its sizing diameters are expertly hand-polished, providing a smooth and efficient sizing process that reduces effort and enhances the longevity of your cases.
Versatile and Interchangeable Bushings
Redding Neck Sizing Bushings are available in two styles, both sharing the same external dimensions (1/2" O.D. x 3/8" long) and freely interchangeable in all Redding Bushing Style Sizing Dies. They cover a range from .185" through .368", accommodating calibers from .17 to .338, and are marked with size identification for ease of use.
Bushing Selection and Usage Tips
To determine the appropriate bushing size, measure the neck diameter of loaded cartridges with a micrometer and subtract .001"Ð.002". This measurement generally provides the right amount of neck tension for bullet seating. Another method involves measuring the neck wall thickness, doubling it, and adding it to the bullet diameter. The result indicates the loaded cartridge's neck diameter, aiding in bushing selection.
Optimizing Neck Grip on Bullets
After loading several cases, test the neck's grip on the bullet by pressing the loaded cartridge against a hard surface with moderate hand pressure. The bullet should not move easily within the neck. If it does, select a slightly smaller bushing size.
Enhanced Reloading Techniques
For optimal results when using the bushing die, lubricate the case necks and install the bushing numbers facing down. Many experienced reloaders adjust the die to size 1/2 to 3/4 of the case neck, a technique shown to improve accuracy in most instances.
The Redding .270" Heat-Treated Steel Neck Sizing Bushing (73270) is a crucial component for reloaders seeking precision and consistency. This bushing not only improves the reloading process but also contributes significantly to the accuracy and performance of your ammunition.
