I've heard that you can neck size using your normal dies by backing them off. Is this true?

I have used this method for over 40 years with good results.RockDog

Thanks. How far do you back it off?

Back off about two complete turns; That should do it. Make sure to lower your decapper. Otherwise, your brass won't be deprime.

Thanks a lot. I will give that a try before I buy a neck sizer die. It seems like there is so much to reloading and everyone has a different take on it. I just want to load the most accurate, best shells possible but don't want to spend for things that I don't need.
