The taper on the nose of the Hornady round (first pictured) was being driven into the feed ramp and not able to ride along the feed ramp.

Whereas the second pictured round is able to ride along the ramp easier therefore not being forced into a "setback" situation.

That's how I understand it. Not to mention I wondered why I never had this "issue" before. When inspecting all my other 45ACP rounds they were shaped more like the second pictured round. Much more rounded nose.

Of course none of this matters with my S&W revo, so I just swapped the other ammo off the moon clips, and loaded up the Hornady on the moon clips. Finally done and happy to know more about my issue than a few days ago.
