I am getting back into reloading for my 300 win mag.  I have a standard rcbs 2 die set which comes with a seater die.  I have purchased a lee factory crimp die and now I am looking into a collet neck sizing die.  I have a choice of either buying the lee collet neck sizing die by itself or in a set with a dead length bullet seating die.  Is the dead length bullet seating die better than the standard seater die?

The seating die I use for 300 WM is a Redding competition seating die that has a micromiter on the top to adjust with which makes small adjustments very painless.

I've found I like the dead length seater a little better, but it's a personal preference. They both accomplish the same thing.
