Hornady oal guage & 5/16-36 tap ??

I called Hornady and asked them what size tap I would need to thread and tap my own brass and the tech. said 5/16-36 he also went on to say it would cost $90.00 . Seems like I've read in the past that it didn't cost someone that much . So can you tell me were to buy this tap and if you have bought one already what did it cost you ? Thanks for any help.

    This place has them for $8.50.

    Special pitch taps - sizes to 1/2 inch - 1000's of specials in stock and most custom taps made in 24 hours. - special threads.



    And this place for $7.00

    Inch/Standard Special Thread Taps



    I've purchased from both places. They will get you on shipping but will still be cheaper than MSC.

    Thanks geargrinder i'll check them out . Did you order a special drill bit for this size tap? If so could you tell me the size I need to order ? Thanks again for everyone's help.

    I just talked to victor machine and I think I shot myself in the FOOT . After I explained to him what I was doing with the tap and how I didn't want to buy every caliber rifle from Hornady he says understand we have a $25.00 order minimun and then directed me to a chart to find out what I need. Oh well I'll try the next place

    Huh, I think a guy could make a tool that used normal threads fairly easy. Maybe when I get some time I should try making one. I can see that using a fire case from your chamber would be more accurate.
