Because the bullets have an exposed soft lead tip, any slight deformation in that tip causes the OAL measurements to vary. (measure the bullets themselves and you'll see.) But since the bullet is seated using an internal circular collar in the die that only contacts the bullet's hard copper sides, that tip never comes into play as far as seating depth goes.

You're fine.
