That's a pretty good video.
I always FL resize. I also have a turret press that holds four die. The most common caliber that I reload. And I never unscrew them or move them. Cleaning them I just spay brake cleaner in them. But I never mess with them after I set them . That way I have the same resized case every time.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

Look up Erik Cortina on YouTube. He has a pretty good explanation why not to neck size.

**just noticed this was an Erik Cortina video lol

Full length resize then run them through an expander.

The best common sense reloading info that I have found is from Panhandle Precision. He goes through his entire process in fine detail explaining why he does or doesnít do certain things. Great info.

Always full length sized and never had any problems.  Erik Cortina has a lot of great youtube videos for the new and experienced reloader.  Love watching his stuff.  :tup:

For my precision loads I size 1/3 down case, rotate 1/3, size down 2/3 down case, rotate another 1/3, then full size. Keeps cases as concentric as possible

No doubt, Sam knows his *censored*... I consider myself somewhat knowledgeable and I learn a lot from his videos.

Full length size. .002 shoulder bump. Quality dies will keep everything concentric the first go around. Blue box brass and yellow box bullets for .1ís accuracy.
A empty vessel makes the most noise.

Full length always!! Neck sizing is a thing of past, like a Ferrari vs a 80ís dautsun.
