Bulge at the base of the bullet on 45acp brass.

Reloaded some 45acps for the first time last night and when taper crimping and seating at the same time there is a slight bulge where the base of the bullet ends inside the case. As in you can see it on the outside. Can feel it if you rub the tip of your finger nail on it. Yet there is no bulge on the factory ammo i have so i'm concerned. Should i back some pressure off my crimp?

Here's a reload (left) next to a factory (right)

"Combined synergy of a man and rifle is matchless, the steadiness of hand and acuity of vision, and finally the art of knowing how to make the rifle an extension of the body, all equate to the ultimate synthesis of man and machine."
