I've also got a mix of RCBS, Lee, pacific ,foster, Hornady and Redding dies.
the dies with carbide sizing ring inserts

and small holes drilled to allow trapped case lube to exit the die without deforming the case shoulders are preferred.

having a micrometer handy to measure case head and neck diam. certainly helps and a caliper to measure case length wont hurt either
use of case lube is mandatory, but you can get by with excellent results using vasoline on an un-inked stamp pad works
smear then use a hair drier to soak in, you want minimal but full consistent case coverage, roll the case on pad before sizing, with practice youll get the hang of not under or over lubing the cases
