Neck and body die sequence

I have a Type S die set from redding which includes a bushing neck die and a body die (which does not touch the neck). What is the sequence of using these dies, when the time comes to bump the shoulder and/or size the body ?

Do I size the neck first and then bump the shoulder, or bump the shoulder followed by neck sizing ?

I posted this question over at 6mmbr, at was advised by a helpful gent on the following:

"You should experiment a little before deciding on a sequence. It all depends on how much you need to bump and how much you need to body size. There are situations where bumping will cause the body (shoulder diameter) to expand and, conversely, squeezing the body down will cause the shoulder to squirt forward. Sizing the neck should have no effect on the shoulder or body and can be done last. Strip the bolt so that you have a good feel for what is happening. When things don't seem to be working out, blacken a case with a magic marker and chamber it. That will tell you what part of the case needs work."

"I suppose that type of question was better suited to a entirely different forum - Noted !"

Sorry you were disappointed here.

So, your final answer on the other board was, basically, "Experiment a little and learn the answer for yourself?"

In our defence, let me say that not everyone has every answer and not everyone here spends his life on the web. It might take more than three days for a loader with the specific knowledge a poster needs to even find the question. ???

Bump die is usually first and followed by the neck die. Emphasis on usually.
