I would start with the longest possible OAL (either within a few thousandths of the rifling or the max length possible in the magazine) and experiment by reducing the OAL by .01" increments until you find what the rifle likes.

I have never heard of the position of the boattail in relation to the shoulder having an effect with jacketed bullets. I have heard of not seating cast bullets deep enough that the base of the bullet extends below the bottom of the neck because of the adverse effect that might have on accuracy.
