That's what I meant. Outside neck turn and just size with the FL die after removing the expander (sans expander). Most of the FL dies I have measured allow you to take a case with ~.012" neck thickness and size (without the expander) and it will give you ~.003" bullet grip. All of the FL dies I have tested have very good concentricity.
Personally I don't mind outside neck turning and it only needs to be done once. It will have added benefits. If you hone a die out and size with it, it will push all the inconsistancies in neck thickness to the inside of the neck unless you have neck turned to a consistant neck thickness. IME inconsistant neck diameters on the inside lead to runout and inconsistant bullet grip.
But hone away, let us know how it turns out.
