It wouldn't hurt, especially if you take more than one step down and turn your necks, you are really work hardening your necks. If uniform neck tension and case life is important to you then it sure would help.

Just do it after all the necking down is completed. If you do it before hand and get the neck/shoulder really soft, you will probably collaspe the shoulder when trying to neck it down and end up with a pile of junk brass.
Been there done that...... once!!! many years ago. Can send pictures if your interested in what the aftermath looks like.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
