I started out in the "no need to size" camp but quickly moved away from it. Now I tumble lube, size then tumble lube and am much more happy with the results. Using my molds (Lee 6 cavity) and used wheel weights I have seen them drop anything from exactly on to .006 too large. Because I am not using an exact alloy each batch is slightly different but usually somewhere in the middle. Now that I push every bullet through a sizer die it no longer matters. It also saves me from throwing overly large bullets back into the lead bucket because they bulge the brass when I load them.
