162 gr A-Max vs 162gr Match HP

I've found the sweet spot for seating depth shooting 162gr Amax out of my 7mm WSM I wonder if I'll have to start all over again with The Hornady 162 gr Match ?

    From what I've seen with the 178 and 208 30cal bthp's are that they have a longer ogive than the amax's maybe 15 calibers instead of 11, but they are not to sensative about seating depth, I have jammed them and jumped them without a lot of change.

    Oh well that's great. I found both on store rack and the HP was a whopping $1.50 more so I'll stick with A-Max.
