I'll just get the .270 dies from Ebay and order a .261 mandrel and appropriate bushing from Lee. Hey woods, the lady at Lee said they had no minimum to buy, they may have changed that policy and I thought you might appreciate knowing about the change. Trickymissfit, if I FL size, then fire form, and then neck size I should be ok on the neck shoulder junction placement, right?
a few years back a dealer gave me two complete sets of Lee Collet dies (.223 & 22-250). I had problems with both of the sets, and just never could quite get there with them. The neck sizer gave me out of round necks on both dies, but if I took it a step further and shaved the necks everything came out OK. I also didn't see any improvment neck to shoulder concentricity. The seater left a lot to be desired, and just gave up on it shortly.

Would a 7-08 Lee collet die neck size 7-08AI cases? If not I'm assuming from what was said earlier that a custom die could be purchased.

Thank you.

Thank you.
Yes, the Lee website specifically says that the Lee Collet for the parent cartridge can be used to size AI calibers. Under the FAQ section
