Re: Lee collet die vs. rcbs neck die

I have to admit that i tought that neck sizeing is much better... Which dies do you prefer for fl resizeing? How do you adjust the fl resizing die?
Thanks for your patience, Tomaž

    I'm not shooting factory chambered rifles but I do neck size. Lot depends on what your shooting and when you make changes can you see an improvement in accuracy and accuracy is lot more than someone saying this or that will or won't work.

    Also ask what their shooting and post picture of what their shooting.

    traz just because you use a neck sizer does NOT mean that you can't full length size

    They DO make Redding Body dies that will size the case body and push the shoulder back (if needed) after neck sizing with a neck die

    I use both methods. It depends o the rifle's application and degree of accuracy YOU require.
    IE: hunting/target/plinking , long range or moderate range. everyone's idea of "no difference" is uh, different.

    Ok, can you show me the way how to do it?

    This rifle is meant to shoot out to 1000m or more if possible, so I would like to squeeze the maximum from it...

    Trazman, if your rifle's well built, you may well get 12 to 15 cm accuracy at 900 meters using new cases with excellent bullets.
