Default Reaming dies?

I've been looking for a set of 280 Rem Ackley Improved dies and while there are some sets avaible I was wondering if its possible to use a chamber reamer to ream the dies as well as the chamber? Anyone had any experience with this sort of work? All feedback/information will be welcome.

The difference in hardness between chamber metal and a loading die is......quite substantial. Not going to happen.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.
