Actually, I think that is the only solution. It is a fact that lead bullets are 0.001" larger in diameter, by design. This increased diameter is not a reloading error, it is intentional.

If every dimension matches the SAAMI spec, with a lead bullet there will be zero clearance because the increased diameter of the lead bullet eats up the 0.001" clearance that the spec allowed. Zero clearance just isn't workable.
