I just picked up a factory vintage M700 Varmint Special in 22/250 and ordered some Lapua brass. I do not have the brass yet and I would like to order some neck bushings for my Redding Type S die.

I am looking for .002 neck tension with the Lapua brass. Anyone have an idea what bushings to order? I will order 3, but not sure what size. I'd hate to order and get 3 sizes that won't work well with Lapua brass.

One method would be to measure the case neck thickness, multiply by 2 and add .224 for the bullet diameter then subtract the desired neck tension.

FWIW I am using a .251 in my type s Redding 22-250 die.
