Default tight clearences with acl race bearings

Hey guys! I am in the process of building my engine for a boosted daily driver/occasional track car, and I have a question for you. I have the stock crankshaft, and ordered ACL race bearings with stock clearances from fab 9 tuning. I plastigaged all my bearings, and all of them read about .0015mm, with the frontmost bearing reading .001. This worried me about being too tight, but I hear plastigage isn't the most accurate way of going about this. another possibility for the front one being the tightest clearance is because I torqued the caps down front to back, instead of from the middle out like I read was correct later. Does anyone have any insite on If this sounds weird, or if I simply just need to have a machine shop professionally check the clearances? strange that stock crank with said to be stock sized race bearings would be too tight on an engine previously with 120000 miles...
