Can someone measure a 6.5 CM round and tell me the outside neck dimension for Alpha brass stuffed with a Hornady 140 ELD-M? If you have Lapua brass as well, can you tell me that measurement too? I'm wanting to determine which Redding type S neck bushings I need.

Thanks

    Cant help you with alpha, but for lapua I use a .289. From memory, my loaded rounds are a few tenths over .291 (.2914 or so)

    i use Lapua with Hornady 140 ELD. Same as above, .289 bushing and ends up at .291 loaded up.

    Yeah I use the Alpha brass, I'm 98% certain I use the .290 bushing. I'll be home later and have a reminder set to make me measure for sure.
