another ring gap question???

just picked up a set of new rings for my 350, measured out at .024 gap, is that excessive? I read the other post that reccomends .016 just got me wondering. This is just a ring replacment and not a new bore. this was previously bored 60 over.

Not to sound condesending but you did measure them squared in the bore right?
