Default Neck squeezing

As you are all aware I'm pretty new to reloading although I have achieved great results already.......I prefer to full length size all my brass for 308,but the question I'd like to ask is,although I FLR can I switch dies to the lee collet die just so I can squeeze the neck that little bit more to minimise bullet run out....YES OR NO

If you are going to use the Lee Collet die along with your FL die, take the expander out of the FL die. Full Length size your brass, then expand the neck with the Collet die and mandrel.

Are you shooting this ammo from 1 gun if so you can delete the Full length sizing and switch to the collet die to neck size. Once the brass body is fire formed to your chamber it doesn't need to be resized except maybe every 5 or 6th loading some times not even then.
