Using one...have to have the die quite a bit lower than where it touches the press, and then when resizing I have to press pretty hard. I'm assuming this is normal for a neck sizing die? Vs a full length resizing one.

Very normal. Also rotate the case some and size again. Lee collet dies are like magic for minimizing runout. I love em!

Yeap, as Chuckw noted. Use and love them as well, even special order some for cartridges that were not covered.

How often do you run these casings through a full size die vs just the collet in your experience?
