As suggested, you may want to consider a die with adjustable neck sizing capability, as different case brands have varying neck thicknesses. Lapua .223 cases have significantly thicker material than most (all?) other cases. I have not had to retire any Lapua cases due to splits after many, many reloadings. LC cases are thinner (but harder) and will permit higher loads without powder compression. (I use a .250" or .249" neck bushing for Lapua depending on bullet, and a .246" bushing for LC cases.) With regards to small base dies, If your chamber is tight, you WILL require this. Otherwise your resized rounds will not only not chamber, but will get stuck, possibly VERY stuck. (Been there, done that - don't want to go there again.)
