Redding has been making Body Dies for Benchrest Shooters for years, but they were never a catalogued item. Now, with the introduction of the Bushing-Style Neck Sizing Dies, they are available as a companion item for most cartridges. Body Dies are designed to full length resize the case body and bump the shoulder position for proper chambering without disturbing the case neck. They are made without internal parts and intended for use only to resize cases which have become increasingly difficult to chamber after repeated firing and neck sizing.
After neck sizing only I had difficulty getting many of my cases to chamber. The body sizing die bumps the shoulder but does not disturb the neck. Neck size first, then follow with the body die. Along with the Redding Competition Shellholder set, the body die allows you to customize the cartridge headspace to your chamber. Performs as advertised. Yes, I would recommend the body die.
