I'm checking out the different .223 Lee dies and can not decide which one to get.
Lee Deluxe 3-Die Set includes a full length sizing die, collet neck sizing die and bullet seating die.
Lee Pacesetter 3-Die Set includes the Lee Factory Crimp Die, Full Length Sizer Die and Bullet Seater Die.
Keep in mind the FCD for the Rifle dies is nothing like the FCD for pistol. FCD for the Rifle is just a really good crimp die. No post sizing is performed.
What is the benefit of the collet neck sizer?
On a bolt gun or single shot your cases are only neck sized and the rest will be conformed with your individual gun making it more accurate.
I'm reloading for an AR
I use the Pacesetters for my AR.
Pacesetter dies are what I would go with for an AR.
-Crimp case neck for good tension and eliminate setback during feeding under spring pressure
You will never use a collet "neck-only" sizer with an AR or other semi-auto. The shoulder needs set back and the case walls need to have their diameter reduced for reliable feeding.
I will go with the pacesetters. Thanks.
