Glad the OP posted this, I had the same questions. I'm loading 200gr SWC from Brazos, and wasnt sure if you measure OAL which hodgdon says 1.225 or if you measure from the lip. I've cycled several mags of my loads and didn't have issues, but the true test is at the range. I crimp using the Lee factory, but I never actually measure the diameter, which I probably should? Then adjust the taper on the top of the die to taper more or less? 230gr RN plated are much easier than coated SWC for sure...
