Sold the ones I had and do not miss them.

But, they can be necessary for cases that are neck turned, which is another thing in my rearview mirror.

Forster FL sizing dies produce less runout for me with careful set-up.

The basic Forster full length sizing die is my first choice for a sizing die as their expander produces less runout than the Redding FL dies, but Redding is good too.

I like them but they aren't a necessity.

Lee collet dies are the way to go, IMO. I've never used any other neck die, but I've seen demonstrations that convinced me that the collet die is better. I've been using them a few years myself, and I wouldn't be without them.

Bushing dies certainly have their place. But most shooters who I know that have used them, had problems with the cases. Used correctly, they are very good. 98% of shooters can use a standard $30 full length die set and make very good, match grade ammo.

I wouldn’t say that they’re needed, but I sure like them.

There's bushing dies that are also full length, which is all I use. When buying them, they are called "full length bushing die".
