OAL is not nearly as critical regarding pressure in rifle cartridges as it is in much smaller pistol cartridges with faster powders. 2.200 is a common OAL and should be fine with a 55 gr bullet. I doubt even at that the bullet is yet protruding below the neck.

At any rate a 0.060" deeper seating is not reducing the overall case volume noticeably.
