what are you shimming is the first question...different thing's require different amount's of play....from CB bearing's to Axle's to R+P's.

you want .3-.5 worth of end play....an easy way to check how much you have is to use a loose shim...if you can stuff it in the shim stack and wiggle it up and down you have roughly .4-.5 if you cant fit the .3 well obviously you need some more play...so remove a thin shim and remeasure.

if 0.3 to 0.5mm why not...

if 0.3 to 0.5in, then you're asking for trouble
