Yup.

You could try making one with some stiff wax and mash a bullet nose into it to conform and see if that works. 8)

I saw on the MidwayUSA online page for 325FTX that Hornady recommends use of the Hornady seating die and their replacement stem shaped for the gummy nose bullets. Haven't tried loading any with my standard Lee seating die but will soon. Hope I don't have to buy another $25 worth of dies just to use the FTX.

It was under the suggested products tab. Probably for all the FTX but I haven't bought any but the 325.
