Default Resizing after swaging on a Dillon 600 swager?

Resizing after swaging on a Dillon 600 swager? Is it needed?

From observation, it appears that Dillon 600 presses on the case mouth to hold the case as the swager enters the primer pocket.

Does this do anything to the shoulder?

Should I resize the case after swaging?

My process for plinking and match (run and gun) ammo is as follows:

1) Wet Tumble
2) Resize and deprime case - via Dillon 650 with case feeder with a tool head that only has a resizing die.
3) Swage - Dillon 600
4) Load - second tool head has everything else.

What do you think?

Does not affect shoulder.

I am new to the 600, crushed a couple of cases due to inexperience. Just wondering.

Thanks.

No, the case rod reacts the force and holds the case-at least on a properly set up unit.
