    Ordered a 22 CM barrel in 1:8 twist yesterday. Was wondering what bushing sizes other 22CM folks have used on 6.5 CM brass. Hopefully, trying to get in the range with as few bushings as possible. Those little buggers aren't cheap. I plan on resizing Peterson 6.5 brass down with probably 2 steps.

    Make sure you have a good outside chamfer if your taking big steps. I ruined a couple of Lapua 243 cases necking down to 22. I’m doing it in one step with a .252 bushing. I think you should be able to get there in two steps.
