Jim Carstenson at JLC Precision in Iowa will custom hone any die to fit your chamber and convert it redding/wilson neck bushings. under $50

he can also take a Redding body bump die and do the same with with as far as custom honing and converting to a FL bushing die.

Forster will hone the necks of their dies (for a small fee) to your specification. However, for all except dies not using an expander button, the expander button determines the neck dimension.

Re: Dies and neck tension?

You can use most neck sizing dies to partial size -plenty enough.
You can use a redding body die/JLC for the rest of the sizing in a seperate operation.
You can use Sinclair expander die mandrels for post neck sizing -sizing, in a seperate operation.
You can use a Neil Jones decapping tool to punch primers in a seperate operation.
Lotta options..
[I do everything seperate of each other]
