Measuring at the ring lands is why you got the measurements you did.
If you put a straight edge up against the piston you'll see how far the ring land area is recessed from the rest of the skirt.
Pistons are at their smallest at the ring lands.
Your machinist picked the right spot.
I was thinking piston slap like rocks in a hub cap ! I didn't catch the method (pre coffee) !
