    It really depends on the gun.Sooner or later youll probably own a gun that likes the bullets in the lands.

    You can get into trouble if you have a max load with some jump and then seat your bullets out farther so that they are jammed into the lands.

    Reading the instructional chapters from almost any current reloading manual from the major manufacturers will almost always steer you towards conservative, safe practices.

    Be safe,
