With specific bullets, yes that can be the case. That is why the bullet I've shown you in the last picture is seated shallow; it is touching the lands.
Many VLD [very low drag] bullets can be hard to reload for.
Here is an article on that subject, Getting the Best Precision and Accuracy from VLD bullets in Your Rifle
I have a few loads that touch the lands, for the simple fact that I used to like VLD bullets. But since I don't shoot much beyond 600 yards, the VLD bullets don't give me very much of an advantage over common hunting bullets like the Hornady 165gr SPBT... which are not finicky in the least.
