I really don't know what to think actually. The UHD60 and this projector both apparently have red and blue color in spades. I don't know why they are so jacked up out of the box. Maybe it's known somewhere that very saturated reds & blues make for a desirable image: if so, I'm not aware of it.
I personally wish I knew more about the advanced color settings and had some calibration equipment to really target just the range of reds (and to a lesser degree blues) that get blown out easily instead of using the more broad Color setting that affects all the colors.
With the UHD60 in HDR, I ended up with Color down to 0 (the default was around 19 or 23) and BrilliantColor down to 2 (out of 10). There was still color to spare.
Going from out of the box settings to color settings way down (far lower than I'd personally liked), the skin tones never looked bad or out of place; yellow and green never seemed to be affected much. Tint always looked good: felt no need to ever change it. Just saying all of that to say I don't have a complete enough picture of what's going on with the color processing to say ultimately what should be done. I just report here what I see and what limited things I know to do to improve them to my eyes based on other display devices and known source material (that I've watched many, many times before).
I use 2 YouTube 4K HDR (must use a Roku Ultra, Chromecast Ultra or something that can play them in HDR) videos that have reds in the over saturated range to adjust HDR Color and an app icon for SDR quickly. It's not the best but it's what I got and seems to work well so far across 2 projectors.
The first video (3 fabrics side-by-side: green, red and blue). With default Color setting, the red cloth will be solid red. At -24 you should start to see the details of the individual threads: blue to a lesser extent. That was as low as I wanted to go. It could have gone lower to see the thread detail properly.
The second video is good for all colors but I mainly just use the red and yellow portions. The first part of the video with reds is a good gauge of the results from changing settings in the first video. Even at -24 in HDR, there are lost details in the lighter red areas. In the yellow section of the video, many scenes will appear more yellow and less orange due to the lesser red.
All of that is with 10-bit 4:2:0. With 12-bit 4:2:0 from the Chromecast Ultra and all the same projector settings the same, all the details appear. Again, I don't have all the details of what's going on inside the projector as to why
For SDR, I just use the GiantBomb app icon (works for HDR also on the Apple 4K TV). There are 2 reds in the "Giant" text. If you cant see them both, reds are oversaturated still. With the settings I've mentioned above, they should both be visible (SDR to a lesser degree). Keep in mind I'm trying to balance keeping color saturation high, just not too high, and keeping both HDR and SDR in the same neighborhood visually.
Of course all of these are just steps to the ultimate goal. Now watch some actual content - various content.
Got to use what's at hand and that's quick. I've spent way too much time adjusting the UHD60 but at least I learned some shortcuts along the way.

Dynamic Black was off by default and I left it off (projector fan noise is reduced somewhat with it on for sure though).
How do u feel about color... I don't understand how this calibrated if we have to go -24 !! to reduce this overblown reds and blues... That is kinda crazy.
I played the other day on -15 Injustice 2 with HellBoy and when i use his special where he jumps into hell i see only RED image with zero details... This is too much for my view.
