For what its worth, you could rent. Elk Ridge Reamer Rentals, www.reamerrentalsDOT com is fairly reasonable. They have the set of headspace gauges for $5.00, floating pilot .45-70 finish reamers for $36.00, and solid pilot reamers for $26.00. and they say they only use Pacific Tool and Guage reamers. I replaced the bolt on an M39 mosin nagant, and had to cut the chamber a little deeper because the new bolt wouldn't close on all the 7.62X54R ammo that I had. If you're careful it can be done. You also only have a few days after receipt of the tooling to get the job done, then send reamers back.
