Laser would be my 1st thought, but you will need a properly configured one for that size of tool. They make micro beam setters that should be able to handle that small of a drill.

Shadowgraph if you got one. Not ideal but would work in a pinch.

Out of curiousity, how long does it take you to set the length offset?

What kind of machine? We have Zoller pre-setters here that would have no issue measuring length and runout that small. That is, if you're even using a changeable shank and not direct in a collet. 

 

There's also this if you want to really get fancy!  😃
