I don't like jamming the bullet into the lands. It would be my luck someone would call a cease fire and now i have a chambered round I don't want to open the bolt on.
The pattern I have been seeing is 0.002 shoulder bump and minimum 0.005" neck clearance, but more does not hurt. so 0.008" is good. I think I am at 0.005".
