Lymans 49th said max AOL for 86gr bullet is 1.592 so I'd think 1.60 is about max.try a depth seating Gage and see how far to the lands

Don't have a guage.would have to use the magic marker method and long seating the bullet, but have never had this problem with cast bullets in any rifle or pistol regardless of seating depth.
