There is a small vel drop off w/ most powders, that could account for the "Softer' feeling load. So if you are worried about making PF, I woild bump the powder charge 1/10gr to account for that. Better way is to trade off the bastard sp brass for proper LP 45acp.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".
