What do you do for NECK tention ???

If I understand correctly consistent neck tention is a must for LR . So what do you do ? Is their any tricks of the trade ?

Thanks for reading.

Re: What do you do for NECK tention ???

Thing #1-- anneal your brass regularly.

Thing #2 - be consistent - the Lee neck dies are good but the correct bushing die is better. If you use a Lee neck die you can actually feel which cases have a thicker neck than others.

Thing #3 - get a VLD chamfer tool so the angle is easier for boattail bullet seating.

Thing #4 - clean the inside of your necks with a bore brush and 0000 steel wool chucked into a drill. Somewhere I put up one of my goofy videos on how to do this easy and quick.

Thing 5 - do not leave lube or any goo inside the neck that can turn sticky.

Thing 6 - you can use a neck turner to take of the high spots on your necks so they are of uniform thickness.

I anneal them like the video on this site, with the socket and a drill, till they just turn purple then into a bucket of water.
Chamfer and clean the inside if the necks with a wire brush.
Then load.

Muscle relaxers and a hot shower I couldn't resist a smart comment! BB's advice is perty much what I do and it has worked out nice, I did order my next reamer with a tighter neck than the factory is so I don't have to work the neck any more than necessary.
For me the Redding bushing die and the VLD chamfer tool made a big difference!

What's a VLD chamfer tool?

Is it different than the Wilson toow that is double-ended with standard 45-degree flutes that debur/chamfer the inside and outside mouth of the case that I purchased in 1966?

I like to keep up on the latest technology.

WesB's link is a good pic of one but I use the Redding, I think everyone makes on now. Made a big difference in how the Bergers seated for me, they slide in like butter!
