Tikka tight chamber

I just bought a Tikka T3 and chambering factory ammo I have a small resistance closing the bolt,
so I took my Redding bump die and bumped the shoulder until it fit the chamber with ease,
with my stoney point I check the measurements and I have .005 between the factory and the bumped case....
every body says keep the rifle a tight chamber is more accurate......
would like some professional opinion on this please....
thank you Michel.....
