Keith Black Pistons Problem

Had oil consumptions problems on pretty new 408sbc. Thought it might be the valve guides. I just finished removing the heads and found 3 pistons with the top ring land broke. I got the pistons with 3/16" ring lands. Have any of you guys had this same problem with KB's? Since have to rebuild the motor and getting new pistons, what pistons would you recommend for a 6" rod 400 that sees a max of 6000rpm? Am looking a 2-valve flat top to keep the compression around 10:1 and not really wanting to go with KB's again. This is also a non-nitrous motor
