Question on seating .38spl lead bullets

I have a bulk pack of 140gr .38spl bullets I bought some time ago. They have two rimmed indentations, the bottom of which is painted red, and the top is not.

How far am I supposed to seat these bullets? I thought they should be just enough to cover the red paint, but now I am beginning to think I am supposed to cover the second one as well? They chamber and fire fine with just the red covered, but the OAL is longer than factory rounds I've compared them to.
