My routine is dose, distribute, tamp, tap and final polish. I tried a number of different practices before this and - at least with my grinder, machines and bean choices - get better distribution, less channeling (just about none or so it would appear from puckology results) and better more consistent shots.

What is the difference in profile between a theoretically well-distributed/well-tamped shot (whether flat bottom or eurocurve), and a pretty well distributed, slighty off-center matrix, tamped well? One interesting side-effect of the "tight-fit" is that it tells you right away whether you are dead straight or slightly off. When sightly off, the tamp gets stuck - I find it to be at least a good training tool for technique.
