Ideal seating depth is an important part of load development.
I don't think jump or jam seating overcomes excessive runout.
Some situations may be more or less sensitive to runout.
Like Greyfox indicated... if you seem to have excessive runout, then consider your brass quality, prep, and procedures. I like to start with good brass e.g. Lapua. But, people still shoot tiny groups with other brass.
