Bullet Seating

Assuming this isn't a single shot, yes? If it were, you could easily seat out further than the "1 bullet diameter" rule. (which for most purposes is certainly a good rule of thumb.)
Once you start working with one in the chamber and more in the well, you need to be sure that bullets aren't creeping forward from the recoil. At that point you might want to consider a Lee Factory Crimp tool into the equation.
I generally get better accuracy without a crimp, but under some circumstance, and for hunting loads, they do have their place.
FWIW, as they say, Your results may vary.
