Resetting the search index completely wipes the index that currently exists. Assuming the number of crawlable items is the number you quote above, then yes, this number of items should once again end up in the index when a full crawl is complete. There may be items in the index however that have been deleted and not yet removed from the old index, or new items that have been created since the last successful crawl, therefore you may end up with a slightly different number of searchable items at the end of the crawl.
