Do I need FL and Neck dies initially?

I am starting to reload for the .234AI cartridge. I am going to Fireform 100 pieces of Nosler .243 Win brass. I am assuming I should be able to just neck size after fireforming, correct? Any reason to get the FL die until sometime down the road when the brass needs to be bumped back to fit the chamber?

Sounds like a good plan to me.
Just what I do except I don't ever use FL dies, just bump dies.

A neck sizer is optional.

Redding only makes a 40 degree shoulder body die are you sure it matches your chamber?

Are you a 30 or 40 degree shoulder?
