brass neck resizing

To resize the brass neck only, how do I have to set up the die?
I'm using .308 federal brass.
Thanks in advance forr the replies.

Re: brass neck resizing

I took a few fire formed brass from my rifle and smoked the neck and shoulders with a candle and ran them in my fl sizer die screwed my until it only removed the black smoked residue from just the neck it works but they also make neck sizers but I use my fl sizer and just bump the shoulder about every 5 or so firings...

Re: brass neck resizing

Get a RCBS or Redding neck resizing die. Trying to make a full length resizing die do the job is an exercise in futility.

Re: brass neck resizing

Agree with gohring 3006, the candle trick works great for me also. I get very good life out of my brass.

Agreed....This is why I have 3-die sets for all my calibers. FL, Neck, & Seater.
