Breech Plug Gap

Good Day, I recently picked up a used 2001 CVA Hunterbolt ML for a song, it came with many accessories and I have always wanted to try Black Powder. I have a question, the manual states that the breech plug is to be screwed in until “snug.” Well I did that; however, there is a large gap between the 209 primer nipple and the bolt face, see pic. I can screw the breech plug out until it touches the bolt face but I’m unsure if this is the correct thing to do as the manual does not mention it. I searched the net but no luck any help would be appreciated. Thanks
