Also... you can neck size a case with a regular full length die if you watch the progression down the neck as you adjust the depth of the press stroke.
Blackening the case neck in some fashion will allow you to see the amount of the neck that is being sized. You can actually size 90-95% of the neck without touching the shoulder, if you so desire. Or you can size to where you just gently "bump" the shoulder, to whatever degree you wish.

"neck sizing" dies are not absolutely necessary to achieve neck sizing without moving the shoulder.

Personally, I have had good results with Lee's collet neck sizing die. No lube on the cases is required, and it works as advertised.
