Redding Type S Bushing Neck Sizer
Redding Body Die
Redding Competition Seater

since they don't make a Lee Collet Neck Sizer, or you can send a fired case to Lee and they will make you a Lee Collet Neck Sizer.

There's normally nothing wrong with RCBS dies, as long as they are adjusted correctly for minimum shoulder bump.
Redding Type-S dies are the better method, and their body dies are fantastic, but unless you get .5MoA or better out of your rifle now, they won't really show that much improvement, they will extend the life of your brass if you tend to push the shoulder back too far with the RCBS dies.
This is easily fixed with an RCBS Precision Mic, it will show you how much your cases stretch in the chamber, and you can adjust your FL die to push the shoulder back .002" to give you a nice fit.
I also do this, but without the expander stem attached, then I neck size in a neck die for the right amount of neck tension.
For most cals I own I have RCBS and Redding dies for, depending on the application.
MM.
