From what I've read, it seems from 0.005" to 0.025", in 0.005" increments. I guess that would make five viable depth adjustments. Is that overkill? Comments?
You can make the steps as small as you want.
The only limit is your time and budget for components.
If your magazine is long enough to seat the bullet touching the lands, I would just start there.
If your magazine is not long enough, then either seat to magazine length and be done, or if you are single loading, seat to touching.
