A bullet that offers more resistance as it enters the throat will help powders like H110 or W296 burn more efficiently- a heavy crimp will only do so much. This is only a factor with that type of powder with heavy bullets and heavy loads.
In my Rugers I size my bullets to .430 and the pistols seem to like 'em. The thing to do is experiment and see what your pistols prefer. Bullets that are under bore size probably won't work well and bullets that are much over throat size will just get swaged down (unless you're trying for more resistance as it enters the throat), anything in between is fair game for experimentation as far as I'm concerned.
