There is no established rule telling us to match our ammo to the rifle or ammo box so you're free to go which ever direction seems best to you. There is no "supposed to be" about any OAL either.
This was my thoughts too. Im no expert reloader but when building my other loads I've had great luck seating the bullet just off the lands (or as long as my mag would allow) I would just think that the avg 223 box would be tall enough for that. Because it was my understanding that's where alot of people seat their bullets?
