Better, take out a little more. When in doubt I like to take out too much on purpose so you know what it looks like too shallow, then go for the middle. When it's right on it'll look football shaped without the flat line at top or bottom.
When you get the depth dead on, play with backlash- minimum spec b/l should be more on the heel of the gear and more backlash will take it to the toe.
