    Gonna try some 6mm/223. Never necked anything up, or down for that matter. Does your lube procedure differ from normal resizing? I've been using dillon spray stuff so far and getting along fine. I know most of you will probably tell me to throw it away but so far, not bad. I realize it may not up to this task. How much of whatever you use do need to make sure gets inside the neck?

    Thanks,
    G

    I would use a nylon or bronze 6mm bore brush with case lube on it, and lube & clean every case neck inside.

    A dirty .223 neck might collapse the shoulder when you try to force a 6mm expander plug through it dry.

    There are tapered expander buttons that work for just such occasions.
    You might check to see if the FL sizer in your die set comes with one? Redding makes a slew of tapered expander buttons.... Forster just started offering the dies....
    Hornady, Redding, and Forster make the dies...

    Lube the inside of the case mouth as previously described, imperial die wax would be my choice. Another, idea is the K&M Expandiron tool they have a\http://www.kmshooting.com/catalog/case-neck-expanding-tools/expand-iron_complete.html

    Yes I ordered a tapered expander not thinking the die would come with one. But it did. Headed to bench tonight to try it out.
