sizing Lee round nose .450 diameter 200 gn conicals

I'm thinking really hard on buying this mold. Would sizing them after casting be necessary?

Hello Hawk,

I use the LEE 450-200-1R in my 44 Colt.
I run them through a .451 sizer die and most show signs of sizing.
Probably not an issue for loading in a percussion revolver,
as your shaving or compressing the lead on loading.
