I have one of both and I won't get rid of either, but am willing to offer advice on your project. First, you will want Neil Jones dies. There are none better for what you are doing.
Check on the 1.5" BAT actions. I think you will like them. Mine are all on Hall Express actions, but Alan does not make them anymore and I only have three of the express models...... FWIW, I would get the 2" BAT unless you were going hiking with the rifle but then again, the weight difference will be minimal.
I will save you some money on brass. As soon as you read this go and order as many boxes as you can afford from Cabelas. The are $50 per box cheaper than anyone else I have found that will honor their advertised prices. (Powder Valley prices on their web site are not applicable according to them. When a new shipment is received, they will post new prices).
