Pressure required when Sizing

Q. I own a Co-Ax Press that I have been very happy with, and recently picked up a Lee collet-style neck sizing die. I understand that some people have some concerns with using this type of die with the floating shell plate of the Co-Ax. I set it up by running the press to the top, hand-tightening the die, then lowering the press and tightening one-half turn more. When sizing a case, I pull the lever down until it stops contact the linkage arms, which doesn’t require more than about 10 pounds of pressure. Should I have any concerns about this method?

A. No, you should not have any concerns. You may use the Co-Ax Press as you would any other press.
