Well you picked a honey to start with! Lee dies will work fine. You'll need to trim well and get something to remove the military primer crimp on fired brass. I use a pilot bit on a drill press. Don't use Rem 6.5 primers, use 7.5 or CCI.

This is great for all size casings from .22 to .50 cal. It will work just fine on .223, 5.62, or 7.62 casings.

You can use just 2 of the available stages for these dies or can add the additional collet crimp die that lee makes. I use it in the 308 caliber.

In pistol format, if available, get the Lee Carbide 4 die set which includes expander/powder charger and the factory crimp.

For rifle, I would suggest the Lee Deluxe Rifle 3 die set which includes sizing for full and neck. Just add a few bucks to get the rifle die Powder Charger and a Factory Crimp in addition to run on your 4 stage setup.

Those are my kits, hope this helps
