The AR die set sizes the base of the cartridge farther down than the standard die set. These are used to ensure better cycling through AR type semi-automatic rifles which can be hard on brass.

Yes the sizing die will deprime but brass needs to be lubed and the military primer pocket will need to be swedged and crimp removed with deburr tool swedging tool offered by rcbs and a good deburring tool will remove crimp

If I am not mistaken, these dies are made by Lee Manufacturing also. I use mine for my Mini-14 which uses the NATO case as well. But, I also use a Hornady case size die to check the accuracy of the neck and taper. I also run a small primer pocket tool on the case for "ridged" primer pockets common in military rounds.
