Can you turn the necks with an outside NT tool
I use them for 6mmppc and 6mmAR for tight chamber

45R, I don't see why not other than it'll take a while.  Before I figured out the .355" reamer I'd turn them on an arbor in my lathe.  The outsides have wherever the thinning cut ends on it until they're shot a few times.  Got the most concentric necks that way but it sure took a lot longer.  Even made a ream die but occasionally you'll get a case that just wants to spin so I just use the forster trimmer/reamer.

My Forster 6-flute .355 reamer arrived today.  Took about 10 seconds to ream a new Starline straightwall case to full reamer depth.  The RCBS tool is a total POS.

will / can a Forster Original Trimmer be set up to both ream the inside neck and trim to length at the same time?

does the reammer replace the pilot and leave the trim cutter in place?

Yep, super fast!

Yes, the reamer replaces the pilot and can finish trim and ream at same time.  But unless you trim the cases first, you wind up reaming about a 1/4" of the case which is being trimmed off.  IOW, extra wear on the reamer and elbow-grease.  I've been shortening first then reaming.

I presume you mean the process and not the reamer.  [confused]  I swear that RCBS reamer/pilot was TERRIBLE; this is a piece of cake!  So... you're off the hook again! [biggrin]

Here's what I was talking about with the Lee taper crimp die v/s the Lyman.   The two Lee ones I have (1990's 357 die set and couple year old 357 Carbide factory crimp die) both have a rather short 1/32" transition that makes the crimp compared to the lyman which spreads out the crimp over about 3/8"-7/16"

Thanks Moleman - good to know.  That Lee "taper" is more of a roll. I have circa 1980 Lyman carbide .357 Mag 3-die set, but I believe it has a roll crimp built into the seater die.
