I picked up some of Berry's double end wad cutters for my 357 mag loads. But I can't seem to find OAL info for them. So what do I set it at? Any help would be appreciated.

I'd seat them such that a slight/normal crimp will follow the profile/radius of the bullet. The bullet will be flush or slightly sub-flush in this case..
If they're super powderpuff, you don't have to crimp at all and then have more flexibility as to length.

Berry's website says 1.590 which is what I seat my normal 357s at I always thought they would be more flush

I hear you. I wouldn't bother with a measuring stick if you're going to "crimp" those.. there's no need to as seating depth is self explanatory in this case
