Not really. A FLS die will may still bump the shoulder back a bit.

 

You can partial full length size though.

You just set your FLS die up same as usual, but I place a dime on top of my case holder, and run the ram up until the dime touches the bottom of the die.

Lube up your cases as usual and proceed.

 

Best bet is to purchase a Lee Collet die for neck sizing, friend.   

Best piece of reloading equipment I ever bought.

Good tip from Cheaptrick! 

 

The Lee Collet Dies work great, and are "user friendly".    I've used them for both .30-06 and .338 Winchester magnum rifles with excellent results.  (The shells are reloaded and used in the rifle from which they were originally fired.)

I forgot to mention this trick the other day.

You can take and "smoke" a case neck or use a magic marker to determine how much of your neck your sizing.

 

Just take a case, clean it up on the outside with #4 wool, take and smoke it with a candle, or use a magic marker and blacken the case neck on past the shoulder.

Lube it lightly and run it up the die once.

When your finished, you should be able to see how much of your case actually got sized.

 

Hope this helps.
