    One more little bit of advise, before you finalize anything, order some brass in and actually measure it. What ever the OAL actually is, subtract .020 for shrinkage. I used actual Dakota brass to come up with my die and reamer specs.

    I will. I will probably email it to Dave in the next day or so to get prices for dies and a reamer.
