Another Fork Fluid Level Question

When I added the specified amount of fork oil (3.9 oz) the oil level with fork fully compressed measures
5 3/4". If I compress it just till I feel resistance the it measures at 6 1/2"; neither being the repair manual specified measurement of 6.96".
So do I compress it fully till I hear "clunk" and go by the top of fork to oil level measurement of 6.96"? Or, put the specified amount of fork oil in (13.9 oz) and forget about the measurement?
...went with the 6.96"...volume be damned.
