Best way to size brass for Edge???

Getting ready to start sizing 300 RUM brass for my Edge. I've heard to use graphite in the neck and several other methods. What works best? If graphite, how do you get the graphite in the neck? Do you also lube the outside of the case? I've done a fair amount of reloading, but most has been pretty straight forward.
Thanks

I used an expander die and 338 mandrel. Then a full length die.

For lubrication, I used Imperial sizing wax on the inside when I used the expander. I suppose you could do it all at once on a resizing die, but the expander is cheap.

Good luck,

I would not recomend using a sizing die to expand the neck, as I bent a stem that way. I would do it the way AJ does it and use a 338 mandrel . I use a Sinclair neck turning sizing mandrel myself, and then full length resize after that.
