Just a heads up on Nosler brass. It is thicker and has up to two grains less capacity. I tried it and my loads with 17 grains of VV133 filled the case to the top of the neck. They may be ok with ball powder but you may be hard pressed to get a stick powder load that's acceptable both accuracy and velocity. My advice is stick with Remington brass. As far as reamer dimensions, 25 & 30 grain bullets of different manufacturers, hence different ogives, require different freebore dimensions. Best to load a dummy round and send it to your preferred reamer shop.

PTG shows a 17FB Match reamer for $275. I wonder what makes it so special / pricy?
