Default Using a round over

I wanted to round over the inside of a wide slot. I ended up making a rabbit instead. For the moment I can live with this but then next slot should be a round over. What is the trick to measuring the correct depth?

The bit was the smallest of a set I got from MLCS. Don't know the actual size.

For a plain round-over, you want to be sure the edge/corner of the bit is just below the table, or just above the router base.
