Just so I understand better, I have a 3-die set of Redding .308 dies, (1) body die (2) Type S Neck bushing die, (3) micrometer competition seating die. I am reloading for a Remmy 700 .308 milspec 5R using once fired Lapua brass. I understand that the body die does not affect the sizing of the neck, and that it would be primarily used for bumping shoulders back a few thousandths to facilitate chambering if and when the shoulder starts causing hard chambering. It can also be used to full-length resize the entire case without affecting the neck area. I understand that the Type S neck sizing die (with bushings of appropriate size) is used to facilitate consistent neck tension and primarily affects the neck area of the cartridge and NOT the body. As far as the neck sizing die, is it correct that it does NOT bump the shoulder under any adjustment? My suspicions are that I need to visually inspect the progress of a neck sizing operation in order to stop the bushing from touching the neck of the cartridge, or perhaps the die itself does that, not sure. I am trying to develop a reloading program that is consistant, and my thoughts are that I should run all fire-formed brass through the body die first, then through the neck sizing die. I don't have a handle on whether the neck sizing die can also affect shoulder bump. Any F-class or tactical folks out there who can help me out?
