Redding .362" Heat-Treated Steel Neck Sizing Bushing - 73362
Redding .362" Neck Sizing Bushing: Enhancing Reloading Precision
Durable Heat-Treated Steel Construction
The Redding .362" Neck Sizing Bushing is crafted from high-quality heat-treated steel, ensuring durability and a long service life. The bushings are hand-polished to achieve a surface hardness of Rc 60-62, significantly reducing the effort required for sizing.
Versatile Sizing Range for Optimal Fit
Offering a wide range of sizes from .185_ to .368_ in .001_ increments, this bushing caters to a broad spectrum of calibers and reloading needs, ensuring reloaders can find the perfect fit for their specific requirements.
Accurate Bushing Size Determination
For precise bushing selection, the easiest method is to measure the neck diameter of loaded cartridges with a micrometer, then subtract 0.001_ for ideal sizing. This approach accounts for spring back and ensures a snug fit for the bullet. Alternatively, reloaders can measure the neck wall thickness of the cartridge cases and calculate the neck diameter, subtracting 0.001_ from this figure for the bushing size.
Considerations for New Cases and Variable Neck Thickness
When starting with new cases, several methods, including the use of a ball micrometer or seating boat-tail bullets, can be employed to determine neck diameter. In cases of variable neck wall thickness, a slightly smaller bushing may be necessary, combined with a size button in the die for final diameter adjustment.
