Do you neck size? If you FL size you shouldn't have to worry about keeping brass separate.
It is my experience with Savages (I do castings on my Savages, don't have any experience with other guns) is that the chamber will likely be pretty similar, but headspace could be different. If you are neck sizing, this could be a big deal. You may want to obtain one of the Hornady headspace gizmos: https://www.hornady.com/shop/?ps_ses...0ac87ed0c3ee5b
I find it to be very useful.
Good looking rifles - proof's on the paper...
