Nice knurling, upon ignition that gap may compress and be gone? Unsure
The gap from the concavity should disappear as the pressure builds. One of my curiosity was how much the flat base of the bullet sat over the web.
If the base radius is too great and the flat base of the bullet doesn't rest over the web then there could be possible drilling. IMO the web adds a lot of support to secure the bullet from downward movement.
