I try to take a few measurements with the knife edge. I try to keep a little pressure on the caliper as I slowly move it to the edge of the case. I find you can tell pretty well what the dimension is just as it slides off the case.

As long as it's in the ballpark I then measure the oal length and then push the bullet end hard, by hand, against the wooden edge of my bench. I push hard enough to make a little dent in the wood (fir). Then I remeasure, if it hasn't changeed oal it's tight enough.
