Ballistic tip seating depth

Hey everyone, where do your ballistic tips like to be seated? I'm shooting the 120 gr 6.5's but any data on others will help. I'm shooting them out of a 6.5-06AI and at .030, .015, and right at the lands the groups were all .6". I'm happy but I think I can do better if I find a "sweeter spot". I usually don't see bullets group like that at 3 different depths.
