Trying to create half-pressed hole forming tool

I am trying to create a forming tool that makes a half-pressed hole.  On the front face, I need a cylindrical "hole" that doesn't go all the way through the sheet metal, 5.2 mm in diameter, 0.8 mm deep.  On the opposite face, I need that same geometry pushed out of the material.  It seems like this should be simple;  I created a tool similar to an extruded hole tool, but with no faces removed.  The "hole" created was the correct dimensions, but the material extruded out of the back was 10.7 mm in diameter, not 5.2 mm.  Can anyone help me understand this?  Thanks
