It could be the sizing. Or, it could be different brands of brass being used, and each has different thicknesses, causing different neck tensions. But, you should have a fairly consistent neck tension. If it's too light of neck tension, that bullet can move around. If you want more tension, remove any expanding ball to keep a tight fit.

Are you using the correct diameter 45 cal bullets? They should be .458 diameter, not .452

If your reloading the Hornady LE brass, you need a crimp die specifically for that brass. It's shorter than standard and the crimp won't reach it. I know that's not what you asked but thought I would throw it out there. I ran into that problem.
