You'll never know the difference in resistance on the press handle. Redding recommends lube on the TN bushings anyhow to minimize the stress and strains on the case neck, which might help reduce runout.
Buy the regular ones, since you're FL sizing anyhow. I've got 15 of these bushings. Saved $180 by buying the plain Jane version. My lubed case necks never knew the difference.
