RPM Forged Crank users??

I was curious if RPM ever started machining their cranks so the rear OEM style pilot bearing would install all the way in? I had a RPM forged crank a few years ago and the factory pilot bearing would only go a little over half way in before it bottomed out. It didn't seem to hurt anything , but it would be nice if they would machine them the same depth as a stock crank so the pilot bearing would go all the way in. I was just curious if maybe they had changed that by now? I'm not sure if Scat or others are the same way or not? Thanks!

I know the Callies crank in the engine I got from woody allowed the pilot bearing to seat all the way.

With the RPM I had I used the old school bronze bushing. Never an issue with wear. Like mentioned above the Callies crank I have now took the roller bearing just fine.
