If both of these dies are for the particular 7mm cartridge you are loading for I see no reason why not.

Damn, I wish someone would have told me before I resized all those 1000's of 6.5 rem mag, 7 mag, 300 win mags and 338 win mags with Lee Collets and Redding Body Dies!

New Shooter,
That is actually an awesome way to size the brass.
You are off to a good start.

"I WAS TOLD BY SOME ONE THAT WITH A BELT CASE I COULD NOT? "

No case body - rimmed, rimless or belted - is bright enough to know if it's being sized in a body die or FL die. Nor does a neck know if it's being sized in a FL die, a conventional neck die or a Lee collet neck die.

You should take any further comments from that "someone" with large grains of salt. His problem isn't what he doesn't know but the part of what he "knows" that's wrong.
