Redding neck die???

Picked up a Redding 223 neck die on sale and wondering if anyone has any advice on using it or if I made the right decision. All brass was fired in one gun

No experience with a neck sizer. But you can't, IMO, go wrong with Redding stuff. I have several items of theirs - top notch stuff.

All fired in one gun - bolt gun, I hope??

Yes, you can neck size only for your rifle or segregate the brass by bolt gun and neck size for each gun. Per your other thread on this subject, eventually you will have to full length size anyway. Following neck sizing make sure the brass chambers in the intended rifle before loading a pile of them. Also, when you mentioned the mixed lot of once fired, that brass should be full length re-sized.

The Redding neck die works fine but I've found little if any improvement in accuracy or case life when using one in a factory chamber. I have a few Redding die sets with neck dies and seldom use them anymore. I do use Redding bushing dies for my rifles with tight neck chambers that I neck turn for.

How many times??

Can you ask the same question??

Do you not like the answers on this and other forms??

You have been advised to Full Length Size first, and then use your Neck Sizer more than several times by more than several "Seasoned" handloaders..

If you can not trust our advise, then I guess, just go your own way??...Bill.

no one said anything about not trusting anyone. I said the more answers get the more info I get to base my decision off of.

2- the other thread was about neck sizing mixed head stamps say if I got range pickups, mixed once fired, etc. was wondering if it was okay to FL size then neck size it for loads or if its wasn't a wise idea to do it because it wouldn't be the same.

I've gotten some pretty good info IMO on here which has helped me overcome a little fear of reloading as well as what to buy and not to buy. this site alone has helped me pick out a scale, new press, powder throwers, bullets, etc.

the point of the Redding neck die post was to ask if there was anything I should know before messing with it.
