For neck sizing only for my 25-06 and .300 Win mag, how do the Lee collet dies compare with Redding bushing style dies or any of the other neck size dies?

I think I will try crimping for rifle and pistol in a separate step from seating. Are the Lee factory crimp dies the ticket?

Do the RCBS X dies truly limit growth enough to eliminate the need to trim? If so I might like to use them for .223.
Any thoughts?

IMHO, there is no comparing the RCBS dies to the LEE dies. RCBS dies have the quality. LEE dies will do the work but... I would pay the extra 20 bucks for the RCBS dies.
