I came across about 75 .243 win cases the other day for free and of course I grabbed them up. They're some older pretty cool PETER brass. However, all I have is the Lee Collet set. I know its pros and cons and everything else about it.

All I read about it is that it's only for brass that has been fired in my rifle, which this of course has not. I don't currently own a FL sizing die. As long as the brass chambers I should be fine right?

I don't really care about accuracy (what.....???), at least for the first time around for me on this brass.

If I need to buy a FL die I will, but before I do I figured I'd ask the all knowing internet.

Thanks!!!

If it chambers, it's fine. The FL die just sizes the brass to minimum SAAMI specs so it'll fit in any gun chambered for the cartridge.

If it chambers now, it should work fine. With 243's case length growth, you will probably need a FLR die soon. Also check the case length.

Agree, chambering and case length are the keys. If it chambers and is within SAAMI spec for length, neck size and load. The cases will tell you when their shoulders need setting back, which a neck sizer cannot do.

I would get the Lee RGB die set. You get the FL sizing die you need and a spare seating die you can then set it for a different bullet and then leave that way. You already have all the other stuff to reload the caliber so this is the most cost effective IMHO.
