Any loading tips for 6.5-284??

I picked up my gun and will start out using 284 Winchester brass. I ordered a Redding full length die and will run the brass thru that first to neck it down. Then, I will run the K&M expander mandrel thru all of them and turn necks. Finally, a Redding neck bushing die will be used, bushing size is .002 under what I want the loaded round to be. Naturally, all cases have been match prepped. Does that sound like the best way to go about this or is there a better method?

unless you have a tite neck chamber you should fireform the brass before you turn the necks.
if you can see it you can hit it
