.002 is a long way from .000 because .002 or more allows the bullet to break the grip that
the neck has on it before engaging the rifling. with neck tension "AND" the rifling holding
the bullet the pressure has to build to a point that it overcomes the resistance to move
the bullet causing pressure to spike as Rocky Mentioned.
If it is not shooting well, sometimes backing off the lands .020 to .025 will improve accuracy
I have found that seating against the lands causes to many problems with temperature swings
Hear in Texas (60 to 80 degree swings are common in the fall). so I all ways start at .020 of the
lands and adjust seating depth for accuracy after the best load is found.
