Just ordered another 5/8" for mine, but they are indeed out of the 7/8". However, the lady taking my info said they were not sure at this point that they would "get anymore in".

Cost was $40 with shipping included.

Primer pocket was huge and a bit too deep. Blew the primer because of the excessive pocket diameter and the primer fell apart when removed.

MU is sending a replacement after I sent them photos of the bulged primer and measurements of the primer pocket.

Diameters pretty much are the same. Lengths can vary up to a hundredth or so between brands.

May have to break down and get one from PR for the 7/8" if nobody will machine out a copy.
