Re: Full lenght sizing VS necksizing, which is better

Wow...if forester does this for $10 extra what a great deal.

i had them make a 338/300 FL die for me and i requested the neck at .362 i think this is absolutely the best way to get the straightest brass.

I'm looking for some new 338 lapua dies. This sounds like the way to go. A .362 neck would put me .004 under.
Wadeeya think??

Re: Full lenght sizing VS necksizing, which is better

I've had extremely good luck with the Lee Collet neck die.

No lube is needed. No "snap back" from a neck expander being withdrawn from a die. Fast and very easy to use. Little if any lengthening of brass.

If I was competing it would be a different story but for my target shooting, varminting and long range hunting the Lee Collet die has always gotten the job done and my actual time at the loading bench has been hugely reduced.

I highly, highly second the notion of using the Lee collet neck die. I love it. If the shoulders need bumped back I use a Redding body die for that.

I'm ordering one of this for my 308. I heard a lot of good things about the Lee Collet neck sizer die.
