Custom straight line dies

I have a .222 Rem improved with a 45 degree shoulder.
I have previously neck sized in standard press but now need to FLS occasionally.
Also I wish to begin using a straight line bench rest style neck bushing die and seater.
who can make these dies for me?
I sent a fax to LE Wilson but nothing but deathly silence there.
The chamber reamer was made by Dave kiff to suit a previous barrell which had 500 fireformed cases.
Thanks in advance

    I have been told that Dave Kiff can also cut you a sizing die. If he made your reamer, he should have the drawing too. Don't know his prices.

    Hornady can CNC you a die for $109 plus shipping, but be prepared to wait 6-8 weeks. Lonnie Hummel is your contact at 800-338-3220.

    One of Jim Cartensen dies will cost $195. He can be reached at 563-689-6172.

    Thanks for the input so far.
    I wish to clarify that I want to use an arbor style press with straight line dies IE no shellholder style.
    I have seen the Neil Jones type mentioned before but they are for the threaded reloading press type such as the RCBS press I currently use, are they not?
    For run out; concentricity and alignment issues I wish to go straight line sizing and seating without an expander ball or shellholder. I will use the correct sized bushing to give me the desired neck tension.

    You can get Neil's dies either threaded or arbor type. May want to send a fired case to him so that the bushing are the rigth size and shoulder angle. I've got the old BR round but in a varmit rifle called a 222 1/2 I use his set of arbor dies for that.

    Neil Jones dies are either inline or 7/8.

    They are the only dies with a shoulder bump bushing. All others use standard neck bushings.
