I have a Lee Breech lock press. Full lenght Dies for a 7mm Rem mag. The gun is a Remington 700. If i bought a neck sizing die can i still use the factory crimp die on them?

Certainly. It will even work on a Winchester Md. 70. ;)

You sure can. If you are going to purchase a Neck die you might as well get the best, and also the cheapest. Get yourself a Lee Collet die, simple the best there is for neck sizing.

At the same time you can get your Lee Factory Crimp Die.

Short answer = Yes.

Long answer = What in the world for?

It isn't needed. Case neck tension will hold the bullet firmly in place until you get into elephant rifle recoil.

I use Lee crimp dies (and like them) but I much prefer Redding neck sizing dies ... the best available in my opinion.
