Misprint? or am I wrong?
It's always a good idea to use a rivet gauge to select proper rivet length. I found the plans call-outs to be almost always correct, but there were a few places where the lengths called out were marginal so I deviated to next longer size. Keep in mind there is some manufacturer variability too, as shown in some photos here on the forums. Also, in my emp kit a few of the bags had stickers mixed up so I ended up without one of the lengths--rivet cutter came in handy more than once.
In this particular location the web is so thin it puckers up after riveting--rivet strength won't be limiting by far. Make sure manufactured head is snug and on the web side.
