"You are not suppose to use a neck sizing die for use in autoloaders."

Rich, the X-Die IS a full-length sizer. But, like the collet die, it uses a mandrel instead of an expander, and the mandrel pushes down on the case mouth during sizing to prevent the case from stretching. The M14 has an oversize chamber, and using a regular full-length sizer you're lucky to get three loads out of a case. Some guys claim to get a dozen loads per case with the X-Die.

Mark, I wasnt talking about an x-die, I was talking about a Lee collet die and then I explained the many advantages of them.
If you are getting a max of 3 loading out of a case, you are setting it back too far. You dont need an x-die to increase case life, you just need to properly set up a full length sizing die. If your chamber is long, just properly resize the cases and keep them with that gun. Sure, the reloaded rounds likely wont fit in a standard chambered gun but you will get decent case life. All it costs is keeping your ammo and guns seperate, I think thats a pretty cheap price.
