    I bought a new Sinclair Case Neck Sorting Tool and 100 new pieces of WW brass for a 300 WM. Everything I have read says to sort the brass by neck wall thickness before going through a sizing die. Most of the case necks are slightly dented and none of them will fit over the pilot for the tool. I would think it should be o.k. to run them through a sizing die and still get an accurate reading. Does this sound right?

    A suggestion: When it comes to tools for precision measurements, don't go cheap.
    I assume you're talking about one of these:

    I am Pro-Sinclair all the way. They bring great products to market.

    But lately Sinclair is sliding in judgement. And this one gets my '08 Worst Product to Market' award:

    Anyway, yes you can size the necks first, expanding out the dings for measurement.
