300 Win Mag die set up Hornady LNL Questions

Newbie reloader here. I've searched but I can't find much info on the Hornady LNL reloading 300 Win Mag.
I have a new Hornady LNL press and I'm looking for some info on Die set ups. Does anyone here reload 300 WM on a Hornady LNL?

I have the Hornady custom grade 2 die set(546352) I was just wondering how your press is set up?

Setting that full length sizing die in that press is the same as in any other "O" frame press. Adjust the die such that is full length sized the fired cases and moves their shoulder back about 2 thousandths of an inch. You'll need a case headspace guage to measure your case headspace such as the one linked to below:

Other than that, the instructions that came with your tools should suffice. The above setup is probably the best way to get good accuracy from your fired cases.
