Bulging cases

So, I'm sizing a batch of 44 mag cases, all my own brass, and I find some that are bulged out so much that I can hardly get them through the sizing die. The top two thirds of the case is visibly fatter than a norman case. I mean they are fat enough that I wonder how it is they came out of the chamber easily. Well,even though I can force them through the die, I am reluctant to reuse them. Tossed em out. So is this normal case weakening or did I accidentally make some loads that were just too hot and am lucky I didn't blow my gun up?
