The .3810" dimension is also a 'reference'. If it has a tolerance, it is +0.004".
Notice that the 0.3800" and 0.3810" are specified to the nearest ten thousandth of an inch. The spec if very serious about these numbers to have spec'd them to 4 decimal places.
And if you over crimp you start sizing the bullet.
