I find just the opposite. Very rarely will a bullet powder combination that wont shoot at all suddenly become great with coal tweaks in my experience. Barnes bullets are an exception because they like a bunch of jump. Seating depth is more a tweaking tool for me. Ymmv.

My process is typically find a bullet I want to shoot. Try it with different powders. If I find a good load I will run a seating ladder. Typically I start 10 thou off and go down.

If gun checks out nothing wrong I would do a seating test first thing. I always find seating as a course adjustment and powder a fine adjustment

I learned this lesson the hard way. These guys are spot on! You will stop chasing your tail when you do seating depth at mid-range powder charge as first step in load development.

Best wishes!

Seated the bullets closer to the lands and things came together. 69.5grains of H1000 at 3.425 shoots great!View attachment 217379
These are the results you’re looking for. A simple tweak in seating depth can make you go from losing your wits to being a happy man haha. Trust me it was a long hard road before I learned this 😅. Great shooting!
