Depends what kind of shape the brass is in to start with, if it's range pickups with gunk on them, decap with a decapper and clean, if it is relatively clean already, do it in the sizing die, wiping lube on the case will take off anything that needs to come off as you do it. No percentage in doing more steps than necessary.

For thos not aware of this outfit, they make a bunch of press accessories and things like spent primer trays for Rockchuckers, storage trays for shell holders, comparators, pilots and some jigs for modifying things like 308 to 300blackout and some others. You may find something you can use there;

For those who may want to look at annealing units that are affordable in comparison to an AMP unit.
Todd Elfer is developing a new version of his, not ready yet as of today due to Covid and supply issues, but, shud be getting out this year I expect;

If you are interested in a decapper other than a Lee or Lyman, this one is designed especially for progressive presses, but works fine in a single or turret as well, and a vid of it in operation;

Another bullet mfgr I wasn't aware of, Maker, seem to be specialized in subsonics, and are expanding their lines as they can.

One of those roundtoits I'm getting around to posting. There is a way top adapt the Lee case trimmers to case prep centers with the screw in accessories such as the Lyman unit, just needs an adaptor.
