Are you sure one is a neck sizer and not a crimping die? Lee neck sizers are of the collet variety. Screw the die apart, if it has a collet, that's it.

A sizing die will have a decapping rod and neck expander. Makes no difference FL or NS only.

Caliber? Perhaps a Lee part number so we can help sort it out.

Its a 243 I was told that to neck size a case fired in my gun would give me a more acurate load

Lee Pacesetter die set? Full length sizing die/decapper, bullet seater die and factory crimp die. This set is NOT made for neck sizing. You need a dedicated neck sizing die.

If you have the Pacesetter dies,you don't have a neck sizing die.It comes with a full length sizing die,bullet seating die,and a factory crimp die.
But,If you have the Deluxe dies,you should have a full length sizing die,a neck sizing die,and the bullet seating die.

I have three Rcbs dies for my 40, the first die rounds out the brass and deprimes. The second one opens the neck to allow the bullet to fit inside the brass case and the third die seats the bullet and crimps the case around the bullet. I'm new to reloading but this how it was explained to me. I havent actually loaded and bullets yet but I hope this works for you.

Crazyhorse, That is two different issues. Your 3 die set is for a straight wall pistol Ctg. We are talking about a bottle necked rifle round. The 2 are not the same.
