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)

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me."
