Hex fitting dimension for a .65 mm braided line?

Hi guys!
Working on a build where I want to use some braided line for the oil system. The line I've chosen has a diameter of .65 mm. I would like to fit the line with some tapered hex fittings but as I never used that type of part before I don't know which size to chose. I found some .7 mm ones but I need help to decide if the line will go into the fitting considering the small difference in size. Would it be better with, say .8 mm? I guess the end of the braided line will clutter to a wider dimension than .65 when cut. Or am I wrong?

Both line and fitting are made by T2M

With a bit of work and patience the 0.7mm one should be fine.
The 0.8 will also be fine and one can not really differentiate easily between 0.7 and 0.8 mm, certainly not with naked eye.
In the end the only question is if you want the slight challenge with the 0.7mm ones.

What type of tool is suggested if I'd go for the challenge ;-)

One idea could be to put tape on one end of the line and then fit all the fittings before cutting to desired lengths. This way you would use the factory sealed end of the line for all fittings.
