yet another Redding S die question

I just got one for my 300WM and tried out a few last night. My question is how far down the neck do you size with the bushing? I smoked a neck with a candle and I am sizing approximately 3/4 of the way down. Also, I have a full length S die, and I set it to bump the shoulder back .001. How often should the shoulder be bumped back? Thanks Cowman

Re: yet another Redding S die question

How often should the shoulder be bumped back?

Some say every firing , others only as necessary , that is to say , when it becomes a bit stiff to close the bolt on a round .

I neck size only with a collet die ( Lee ) and will ( when it becomes necessary ) bump the shoulder back a thou or as close as I can get to that figure .

On my 300 winnie it may turn out that primer pockets are too loose before the need to bump the shoulder back . 6 or so firings it seems , and not with full tilt boogie loads either , just knocking on the door [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

I haven't lubed a case in so long that I know I'm not gonna want to start doing it again . Those collet dies are a real eye opener for someone that has never used them .

Re: yet another Redding S die question / more on collet dies please

Could you go into more detail on the Lee Collet dies. Currently I am using Redding S bushing dies and I am not sure that they are all that they are advertised to be.
