If you can Mike post a photo, Nathan has listed instructions on how to do it via photo bucket etc. at this link.

Base of the neck parallel or where the shoulder taper starts?

The headspace is set off the shoulder angle in this type of cartridge. When full length sizing any cases I leave this measurement as tight as possible. Just easing the tight feel that you are experiencing on the bolt. Many rifles deliver very good accuracy when F/L dies are set up this way.
