    Lee Collet Neck Sizer vs a Standard Neck Sizer Die

    I got a set of Lee dies and the neck sizer is a collet neck sizer, I havent played with one of these before, but Lee seems to be quite proud of it.

    Anyone have any input, pro's or con's, do's and dont's?

    I have always used the standard neck sizer, run it through and then your done.

    Set up the Lee Collet neck sizer today and ran a few pieces of brass through and seemed to work quite well. I have read a lot about it and guys love it or hate it, seems the ones who hate it, probably aren't using it properly. Time will tell of course, but for now, I will stick with it and see how it works out.

    What does Lee claim as the advantage of the collet neck sizer?

    It has a straight shaft it runs down the inside of the neck to align it perfectly, then at the end of the stroke, it neck sizes using a mandrel type collet to size the neck.
