Attempting to create 250', single-ring buffer on a featureclass in a file geodatabase.

There is only one object in the featurclass. 

Object is a result of a dissolve of 28,000 polygons.

How long should it take?  I've let the process run 4+ hours without a result.

Thank you for taking the time to respond.
