What's your tolerance with OAL?

I am currently loading up some 155 gr 40S&W flat points on a Lee turret press. I set up my die to about 1.129" OAL. I am noticing that from round to round I will get anywhere from 1.1285" to 1.134" -- the ones that have been running a little long I just run it another stroke on the seater die and its usually spot on. My personal tolerance is I'm okay with any round that is between 1.1285" and 1.1305". Is this reasonable or should I be less forgiving?

I loaded up 150 rounds and all of them where within this tolerance. I checked all of them and they cycled through the pistol perfectly. I will be shooting them Sunday.
