I suspect if you did you would have to work on the seating plug so that the tips of the bullets did not hit up inside the plug
Also I wonder if you had a little too much seating force if the plug would "ride up" on the ogive a little
Good idea about drilling the comparator to the exact land size which IIRC would be .008" below caliber. I don't know why Hornady or comparator makers don't do this automatically
