    You may not need to ream or neck turn them at all. It depends on the chamber in your rifle and how thick a loaded round is after seating a bullet in a resized case. If there is .003 or .004 difference, you will be OK. Check a number of them as they will not all be exactly the same. If it is bigger you will need to neck turn or ream your brass. Reaming is easier and just as effective for getting it down to a safe size.

    Neck turning will not automatically give any better accuracy either. There are many variables. Neck turning is viable when shooting a tight necked chamber so you can "fit" your loaded rounds neck size to it to get a nice straight start for the bullet.

    Here is a link to a Wilson Trimmer and reamers (scroll down) to fit it. They are top notch.
