The chambers on Lee Enfields were cut somewhat generously. The theory was that the gun would feed and shoot even when dirty.

That's not a problem because the case headspaces on the rim, but it does become a concern during reloading as full-length resizing can dramatically shorten case life.

If you neck size only, you'll increase your case life quite a bit.
