Help select .223 dies for newby.

I shoot a .223 bolt gun and I would like recomendations on what dies to get. I have a Lee Cast Press. I will be loading 68 and 69 grain bullets (what the gun likes). Do I full length size, neck size, both or what? I love testing loads and squeezing every bit of accuracy I can. What are your thoughts?

    I have lots of .223s and lots of 223 dies.

    I like the Forster sizer with the expander ball stem removed for sizing with Redding Imperial Die Wax in an RBCS Rockchuker press.

    I like the Forster Ultra Seater for seating the bullets in an RCBS Partner press.

    To hit the squirell at 140 yards, I like 15 gr Blue Dot powder and a 33 gr Vmax with moly, and a 32X scope.
