When I was on active duty an NCO in my small arms shop told me that the AMU recommended breaking the sealant on 7.62mm ball rounds by seating the bullet until you felt/heard it give, usually just a hair's breadth of movement.  The intent was to give uniform release of the bullet, round to round.

Yes, particularly for match ammunition.  I don’t recall if I did this in the tests I ran for this post.  Cases are crimped into the bullet for ball ammo and that tar really takes a set.
