Getting just under 2" @ 50 yards from sandbags. Gold Cup, Kart Barrel.

Brazos 200 SWC Hi Tek coated,
4.0 Bullseye

I too use the seating stem that pushes the SWC by the driving band.
OAL is set by the barrel and Plunk test. Barrel OUT OF THE GUN. They should go in the barrel and be able to turn,
or fall out when the barrel is turned muzzle up.

Its what works for you. OAL, Crimp and powder charge.
If you go to the bullseye forum listed earlier, you will find pages of loads by masters and Grand masters.
Spending the time trying out different loads helps you get to know your gun.
