My 94 AE Trapper does the same thing to the cases that yours does. It's not because of pressure, it's because of oversized chambers.
I have fired everything from target loads, to Corbon factory loads and the ofset bulge is always there. It just varies with the pressure of the load.

.45 colt brass isn't always easy to get so I never throw them away. I carefully resize them in a carbide die and keep using them. Never had one fail. Not yet anyway.

The only cure for this problem is to rebarrel the rifle, and have a minimum chamber cut in it..
