If I have measured my headspace on my fired cases and set up the sizing die to push the shoulder back .001"-.003" and locked in place with my quick change bushing, if I only have 1 rifle of this caliber there should be little to no need to adjust future decapping/sizing, correct?

Correct.... up to the point where the brass fatigue causes spring back. Then you adjust or anneal.

Thanks for the confirmations. I plan to sent to annealing service after 3 fires regardless of spring back as that seems to be about the standard.

Never move more brass than is requisite,to establish feed/function.

I always start with false Shouldered Virgins,whenever possible...both for case life and Precision...............
