Question for those who neck size

My question is for those of you that neck size your brass do you use a full length die and just back it off to do a partial neck sizing, or do you buy dedicated neck sizing dies?

Re: Question for those who neck size

I buy and use dedicated neck sizing only dies. I've really come to like the bushing style without an expander ball...........very little working of the brass and cases come out of the die with very little eccentricity, really close to how they came out of the chamber.

I'm not doing that much reloading so I just back off my full length Forsters for my 25-06 and 30-06s.

Re: Question for those who neck size

IF an FL die can be used to neck size and not touch the case body we can neck size for that die-cartridge combination. That generally limits it to cases with lots of body taper, not often possible with straighter wall cases.

I bought a Lee Collet neck die years ago just to try it. Soon replaced all of my conventional neck dies with Lee's. There is a moving part in it (the collet) so it there's a learning curve. Those who have difficulty with mechanical things and are unwilling to take the time to learn how to use the Collet sizer correctly should stick to more simple 'push the case in, pull the case out' neck sizers.
