    I am shooting a 7 rum . I have RCBS FL die set. I am wondering if I should buy a neck size die?
    Questions / comments are appricated.

    Shim the FL die up with a nickel on both sides and you are neck sizing. They are nice to have though, no lube needed usually.

    They're sure nice to have. I use my neck sizers a lot.
    I'm getting only 4 neck sized reloads out of my 270 WSM before they won't fit in the chamber. Then I must use the Full Length sizer.

    My 7mm RM has 5 reloads on most of the brass and haven't needed FL sizer yet.
    Go Figure. :D

    well I think I will get one. ever heard of the brass being tight clear up at the end the body. ( right below primer on the body) it fits in the chamber just a lil tight?

    Yep, that is why FL sizing is required! NS will never fix that.

    Save you $ and learn to properly adjust the FL die to give .002 shoulder push back and no need to NS die.
