tapered pins

I bought some tapered pins to use for the pivot on some lock back folders. The pins are 1 1/4" long and .125 at the narrow end and .150 at the thick end. I am figuring I would need to drill a .125 hole and then ream it with a tapered reamer but I can't figure out what size of reamer I need. Can anyone tell me? or is there a special drill bit I should use?

Looks like a "0" .130 small end .156 large end. A regular drill bit should do, but if it's too hard to ream you can step drill it.
