    I've taken my dremel tool with a stone made for a chainsaw and using oil honed the neck out. I only took .002 off the inside and that has given me what I need as now my collet die will be able to do its job. Took 20 min of work. I will confirm it's worked by checking the concentricity of my reloads.

    You might need more than .002 to clear the fired neck O.D.
    The ideal scenario is what Forster can do for their FLD. Send in a couple of dummy rounds and they can hone the neck of their dies to give a custom .002" neck tension without using the expander ball;).

    It does size it down slightly just not completely. Then the collet die finishes it up.

    Dremal with a saw tooth wheel taking it down .002”
    Sounds disastrous for runout.

    I don't think so because the lee collet is finishing the neck sizeing process. I've not loaded any ammo but definitely will report back what the runout looks like. I think it's gunna work great.
