    i am working on a 260 build project and i need to order my reloading stuff
    i bought the redding competition bullet seater. but i need to know about the sizing dies. full length or just neck size. If you suggest neck size how do they work?? i have only full length resized in the past for my other calibers. i will be using 260 brass and this is a bolt gun.
    i would like to here all opinions if you would like to share.
    my barrel just got ordered it will be a brux so i have 4 weeks. but i like to stay ahead of the game.

    You are going to need a FL die no matter what. If you use a NS die, at least buy the Redding body die to push back the shoulder and size the lower body ($27)

    Cases will grow and get hard to chamber, NS will not fix that only FL die.

    Bounty has a good suggestion. Add a Lee Collet neck sizer and you will be ready to go.
