Question about reaming for Ruger SA oversize base pin

    When using a Manson reamer for an oversize base pin on a Ruger SA, would it be best to ream (1) both holes from the front of the cylinder frame, or (2) both from the rear of the cylinder frame, or (3) do them individually?

    I am thinking that it would be best to ream them both from the rear so the reamer is supported by the rear hole when it cuts the front hole. Kuhnhasuen doesn't seem to have any view on this -- does anyone here have a theory or practice on this???

    Many thanks (and best holiday wishes, too!).
