Exactly and that's what I do. Afterwards if using the Redding bushing die I'll use the undersized retainer rather than the standard expander. If using Lee's collet dies for neck sizing only I'll still chamfer the inside and outside of the necks.I run new cases over the expander to make sure necks are round, then chamfer the inner case mouth for ease of seating. 99% of the time that's all you need to do. New cases are normally considerably smaller than the normal chamber. I can't think of a single case in several decades where cases needed to be sized beyond truing up the necks.
Me too. Dented case mouths and burrs from manufacturing are common defects in from the factory new brass. But, as I do every case, every time I reload it, I inspect the cases...Pistol gets sized, belled SLIGHTLY and reloaded
Rifle gets FL, trimmed, chamfered in and out and reloaded.
Good point. Forgot that I like to deburr the flash holes on the inside and uniform the primer pockets too.I treat my new brass like once fired brass and do the whole thing with it except I also check the flash hole to make sure it goes all the way through. I've run across a couple of new brass where it didn't. Very rare but stuff happens.
