Shim Manufacture

Is anyone here capable of making precision round shims/washers?
What I need is some round washer type shims with these dimensions:
OD Max 0.56
ID Min 0.43 (this can go slightly larger but not more than under Max OD)
Thickness .010 thru .020
Materials
Brass, Bronz, Steel, Stainless not that picky.

Need an assortment of thicknesses within those ranges.
Please provide minimum buy quantities if you have any.

Looking for a quote at this point.

Thanks for the link but these are a bit custom.
Looked all over and cant seem to find what I need.
OD is critical and ID I can make bigger if needed.
Thickness I can work with as I can always hone it down with a wetstone or something.

We make our own shim cutting jigs and buy shim stock.

Sorry it’s a little late but what are your machining/gunsmithing abilities? I’ve made hundreds of different shim type pcs over the years. I’ve made die sets for production runs and sometimes I’ve used the pressure plate method for small quantity/prototype pcs.
Would be easy to make a die set to go in your reloader for that size… Depending on material type and quantity would determine the details of the set.
