Frame slightly too tall, what to do?

I am framing my unfinished basement and the ceiling is +/- 1/2 inch difference between the floor joists. So, on one end, the frame is a snug but acceptable fit, on the other end, it's like too tall by about 1/2 inch. Should I just sledgehammer it into place, or use an oscillating tool to shave off some wood from the top of the frame? Or some other solution? The flooring above is wood. Thanks!
