just worried about some type of safety issure here.

7MM you seat the bullet to what ever diameter of it is.

Using your .270 as an example, I would try to get a minimum of .250-.270 of the bullet in the neck of the case, not counting the boattail. With long throats and\or short bullets this may drive how close you can get the bullet to the lands.

One bullet diameter is usually enough to give good case to bullet concentricity.

One bullet diameter is the old rule of thumb but not necessary. As long as the bullet is held straight and doesn't move with whatever type of abuse it will be subjected to it is fine. I would seat to whatever shoots best and/or fits the magazine depending on preference.
