Those are an absolute treasure find. Buy yourself a comparator that attaches to your calipers and load away.
would i use a compartor instead off calipers or would i be useing them as a giude to get my oal i think follow what you mean if ojive is close and seating happens close to ojive not tip thay all should seat the same in case is that right? and thanks ps fle market find
 
Using a comparator that "attaches to your calipers" is a far more accurate way of measuring consistent seating depth. Measuring from the head of the casing to the tip of the bullet will give you good results. But they will be inconsistent. Measuring from the Ogive to the case head is far superior. Since the bullets you acquired have been man handled a little bit I suggest getting a comparator like the one Hornady sells called the "Lock-N-Load bullet Comparator & basic insert set" for rifle bullets will serve you well. Just make sure your not exceeding the SAAMI spec. for over all length.
