Hey GB and all
I was given a new 6.5x55 lee Collette die and it wont size the neck. I do not have any instructions but real men dont need them. Now I am not saying Im a real man, but, man to man what do you say and what can I be doing wrong?? All it does is score up the neck a little. I miked the ID and OD of the brass and then did the same to a full length die and a big difference found. what you say??

With the neck sizers on lee dies, they usually come out looking like they are vertically scored... but still sized...

wrong markings? Don't make too much sense? Are they loose on the bullets? Right sized bullets?

You can go to the Lee website and request instructions be sent to you. Look in the Frequently asked questions section and it tells you how to adjust the dies.

It takes a bit of muscle on the handle after the ram contacts the bottom of the die to actually make the die work.
