There has been a great deal of discussion on this subject. The intellegent answer always comes back - no. Lots of guys will tell you how to go about it but the die wasn't designed to do that and results can be all over the reloader map. A LEE Collet Neck Die only costs about $15 new, you can probably pick one up on eBay for a lot less. More elaborate dies like Redding bushing dies are markedly more expensive but unless you are a highly skilled bench rest shooter/loader you won't reap the benefits of the added equipment cost.
