What's the difference between the 40-82wcf and 40-82 shiloh

I'm thinking of ordering a rifle in 40-82 and I already load for a Winchester in 40-82. I just wondered if I can plan on using my current equipment for the new Shiloh rifle?
Thanks

My 40-82 is just a longer 40-65. Original 40-82 has a shoulder, so no, the shiloh will not chamber your 86 win. ammo.

Thanks so much Kirk!!!!
Are you saying that to form the brass for the Shiloh 40-82 you simply need to run the 45-90 brass thru a 40-65 die? or am I over simplifying the forming process?
