    Steve,
    I went back over your reply here and I understand more about that Lee Collet die that I am using. YES .... I do believe that will be all I need.

    A detailed reply was somehow lost but I did a complete sorting of all my brass. I now believe that those 25 "loose bullet fit" for some reason.......are my oldest brass. You see ..... I have not been shooting or reloading since about 1989. I had lost track of loadings on the brass I had. BTW... I have purchased new brass and I am starting "number of loadings" records again. The tighter neck tension on theremainder of my older brass from 1989 is real close to brand new brass.
    I think I am on the right track and when I can get out next, I have a Ladder test target with matching details of powder grains ...... and.....some OAL variances recorded.
    Wish me luck!!
