Consistent Crimp is perfect for Neck sizing

Things are hopping here just a quick update men.

I just got off the phone from a very informative conversation with none other than Mr John Lee of Lee Precision....yep "that guy"

Aside from feeling quite amazed that he answers the phone, I am honored that such a man would spend time with the likes of me.

Anyway, the meat of the matter. He explained to me that that the Consistent Crimp was perfect to use in conjunction with their Collet-center-mandrel style neck sizer dies. They specify 25 ftlbs of pressure to be input into the press handle to reform the casing neck perfectly. Obviously the Consistent Crimp makes this quite easy to do.

Those of you still searching for the Holy Grail may find some serious improvement by using the CC in this step as well.
If you are not measuring, you are guessing.
