I had a HS with a lower race like this years ago, and IIRC it needed a tad more preload but took more before it got grindy... I remember thinking there wasn't much room for grease at the time, it almost needs to be injected or something.

It strikes me that roller races could be particularly vulnerable to corrosion-induced false brinelling if allowed to run dry, simply as a directed consequence of the increased contact area.
