As was stated above neck clearance of .002” is a good target.
If you accurately measure the brass from each chamber you will see how much it differs from each other.
We normally measure the neck, shoulder and base dimensions of the fired and sized brass as the way to match up the sizing die to the chamber. One measurement that doesn’t get the attention it should is the shoulder (tapered part) bump back. It is common to see the dimensions over sized which effects the headspace clearance on sizes brass.
In a target type rifle this should again be in the .002” range of bump back. In a hunting rifle a bit more bump back is recommended to handle adverse environmental conditions.
The closer you can match the sized brass back the chamber dimensions the better it aligns the projectile to the bore.

Curious as to why the interest in a .262" neck?
In the last few years the the majority of reamers are in the .268-.269" range.
If you have a specific reamer dimension you would like you can order one to those specs. without any additional cost.

The amount of bullet in the neck is not a real big concern. With powders like N-133 which seem to like lots of neck tension on the bullet to aid in pressure curve, may be a slight issue.
As you are not using the magazine to feed, I would not worry about the amount of bullet in the neck, just feed the rifle what it shoots well.
If the bullets are flat base you should be fine, a boat tail will have less neck grip due to the reduced bearing surface.
With the dies you are using you should still be able to make minimal runout loads.
I once had a 40XBR that had .010" of bullet grip on a .223 50gr Berger bullet.
It shot pretty good.
You may find that your rifle may like a wee bit of bullet jump, so do test that option.

Thank you to Rick, Hugh, Wayne and their wives for hosting a great event at the Rosebud range on Saturday.
My feed back is two thumbs up, and the fellow participants that I talk with, all had nothing put positive feed back about the days events.
Wayne provide a new level of understanding about the BR game which was/is muchly appreciated.
Thanks again to all involved.

I had sent in a Form 6 in after June 16th, and my normal application information was rejected due to smokeless powder and primers being listed on the form.
I called in the find out why this was now an issue, in was told as of June 16th, smokeless powder was classified as an explosive.
My research on the subject did not show that smokeless powder or primers falling in the US explosives list.
I called in to get clarification and pointed out this point, they followed up on the question and got back to me with the response that the ATF considered smokeless powder an explosive as one of its components was listed in the explosive category.
I removed these two items from the form 6 and it was approved.
My other question was how one would be able to take powder and primers south, they suggested that I look into an explosive licence. I have not checked out the process or cost yet.

Keep it going Rick, still check in on a the site daily.

Another point to coincided is weight, most external adjustable mounts add weight.

No I did not forget Dave and Andy, enjoyed the limited time I got with them.
Hope everyone made it home safely.

Thank you all for the wishes.
It was a very good shoot, weather was on the warm side getting into the 100+ range every day.
Wind conditions were typical Phoenix, with only one day where it got close to the stupid side.
Hugh and Rob got their equipment working and figured out the conditions to have some very good yardages.
Rick shot very consistent and started to place better as the week went on.
Wayne had a rail gun that decided to give him a challenge, he worked very hard on getting it up and running.
For myself I did quite poorly, tune and condition reading hurt my efforts.
Overall, it was a good shoot, well run buy the Berger group, great give a ways.
The only negative was that there was very few vender tents there, so most saved some money that they would normall spend on "gun bling".
