Probably a stupid question but seeing as I am new to reloading and when it comes to ammunition I don't think there really is a stupid question.
When using the Lee Collet die should I just run the brass in as far/hard/tight as I can (within reason) or keep adjusting it until I get the desired neck tension?
now for me how do I know what is the desired neck tension as this will be the first load development I'll be doing? Because as I see it the brass is compressed around the mandrel tightly at the max which gives a consistent tension. If this was too tight then the bullet would expand it slightly on loading and again give it the right tension?
i imagine once I've been doing it a while I may want to experiment with less tension and see if that effects accuracy but not something to worry about now.
Thanks in in advance for any help.
