Need to rent or borrow an '06 pull reamer

Would anyone have a pull reamer with drive rod for 30-06 Springfield available for use? I will pay rent and shipping. Finishing up a rescued 1903 and it's the last thing I need to do.

Why do you need a pull reamer for an 03?

I just headspaced a Remington 1917 with a Criterion barrel (I think it was a Criterio) using a standard (Manson) '06 finish reamer with a 3/8" extension. Very little needed to be removed - a light kiss only.

It's likely to be the same "light kiss" with this weapon but I wish to have the precision of a pull reamer locating on the bolt face.

The precision of chamber already reamed will be enough. The reamer will follow the pre-existing chamber regardless of influences from the bolt in any case.

I have rented from this company twice. They shipped promptly, the reamers were razor sharp, and the return procedure could not be easier.
