Use of Reduced Mass in the Precession Formula

It could be argued that the effective or reduced mass should be used in the precession formula, but that would only reduce the precession angle by about a half, because the mass of the pulsar and its companion star are about the same. That would give about 8 degree in 7.75 hours, still twice the observed value. If this precession is indeed meant to be for an earth year, then the Einstein theory is completely, wildly, wrong. Anyone can go through google to find the right data.
