I'm in agreement here. I used to just neck size, but now I use a Redding FL/neck bushing sizing die. It does both body and neck sizing steps as well as de-primes your brass in one stroke of the press.
I used to use the 3 die set that you have, and it certainly works fine, but the all in one die saves time if you are planning on FL sizing too.
When I only neck sized, I found that after about 3 - 4 reloads without FL sizing, my rounds were getting a bit sticky to chamber.
In any case, I FL/neck size and also trim the OAL every re-load now.
