Eric T, There is no problem in your thinking......

the application is somewhat difficult. The problem lies in the type of expander ball that is used in sizing up the necks. Also, lube in the neck also helps.

What you need is a Redding long tapered expander or a similar tool. Lube the inside of the necks before you try and expand them with Lee Sizing Wax, Imperial Wax, or some real slippery stuff of some kind. A regular expander ball like you see on a RCBS die really stinks for the kind of application you are using it for. You will end up with whopper jawed neck thickness, with one side of the neck being longer than the other side.

Email me at keithcandler at msn (remove this) at msn dot com if I can be of further help
