I looked into a similar situation some years ago.
I was advised that if you had just one initial purchase and one "sale" at the end you can treat it as one "average" transaction without having to document all the reinvestments along the way. I don't recall how it should be reported, especially with the newer 8949 forms, but I believe you can still do that. Probably worth investing in a consult with a good tax advisor/accountant to save yourself the headaches.
Best,
