    Some time ago, someone had a chart for the measurement of MEC and PW bushings in Thousands.

    I would like a copy if someone has one.

    Thank you,

    I don't know about P/W bushings, but Hornady bushing #'s refer to the inside diameter of the bushing measured in thousandths of an inch. I believe Hornady bushings also work in the P/W machines. I could be wrong about that though.

    Yes, I use Hornady bushings in my PW and Spolar.
    Much easier to zero in on a load.

    Chuck,

    Refer to my post above. The Hornady bushings numbers are actually their measurements in thousandths of an inch. They are the easiest ones of any of them. Example: Hornady Bushing #441 measures .441
