Forster will do the same. I don't know if Redding will.

Send your fired brass to Forster and they will cut a sizing die for you. One thing I didn't like about Redding was how the sizing die comes from the factory. It really squeezes the necks down tight causing the need for the expander to have a tight fit, squeek a lot, and all that work really hardens the brass.

I sent my dies back with a dummy loaded round and asked them to give me .0025 less diameter so when the neck is resized it does not require the expander, and there is .0005 room for spring back. I don't use an expander and haven't for years now and runout is almost a non-issue.

I have the RCBS comp. dies,with neck. I love the micro seater, it has a sliding sleeve and a window on side, you just drop a bullet down in sleeve then it rides up to stem. I find this very handy for handling those tiny bullets, produces good ammo.

Try some imperial Dry Neck Lube on your necks before you FL size them it will drastically improve the dragging of the expander button through the neck.
