how to set a bullet without a die

I am new to reloading..  I've learned the basics and can load using normal dies etc.    I have a 6mm Donaldson wasp that I would like to get some dies made for.   The manufacturer suggests I send fired cartridges to them to make the dies.  The problem is I have to make up a few rounds to fire them without a die...  I have 219 Donaldson wasp cases (which are very similar the 6mm they have to be shortened a bit but will work)
and a tool to enlarge the throat to the correct size.  Could someone please give me an idea how to set a 6mm bullet into the case without a die? Thanks so much

You can fire form a case without a bullet or dies. Just put in a light charge and fill it with corn meal on top. Then either wax or hot glue over the corn meal. Make up however many you want to fire form.
