    What dies can one use to control neck tension besides Redding bushing dies?

    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.

    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..
