Can this be done? It seems like I heard somewhere that you could do this or did I jsut dream that up.
No, not really. Contrary to what many believe you cannot truly neck size with an FL die. As soon as the die touches the case body you have altered the case and it is no longer "neck" sized. Buy a Lee Collet Die.
but i'm not really sure that the Hornady Custom Grade New-Dimension seater would be a good choice
How well it works depends on the case. I do it all the time with my 220 Swift.....lots of body taper. Same with the '06 and H & H family of cases. But, when you get into the more moden cases with very little body taper, or improved versons of the cases listed above, it is very hard to do. Then it will depend on your die/chamber. A tight chamber and a die on the big side would make it possable. the other way around.....not so much.
