I am using a Redding 6.5 Grendel bushing die with a .264 bushing and I am crushing the necks. What can I do to stop this from happening. I am using new Hornady brass to form my 6mm brass. Thanks ahead of time for any suggestions

When using a bushing die to neck down brass you'll find that it must be done in steps, usually no more than .008-.010 at a time

Hmmm....
Well, I've never used any kind of "bushing" die, so I can't really help with that.
Ok, you're using Hornady brass, but which case is your parent case?
When making big changes in the parent case, don't expect to do it with one stroke of the ram.

I had the same problem when experimenting with resizing (RCBS dies) some old '06 brass to .243.
I pulled the neck expander ball out and resized the brass in probably 3 or more strokes, pushing the brass into the resizing die a little deeper each stroke.
After cutting the brass down and trimming, I reinstalled the expander ball and resized one more bv time.
Worked great.

Op,
Anneal the necks
Lube inside & out w/ Imperial Sizing die wax
Neck down w/ 3-4 bushing to your desired inside neck dimension.

Different manufacture brass will require a different bushing combination.
