Hi Merc and welcome to TFF. Glad to see ya posting. The primer pocket holes can vary between manufacturers. Lyman sells a great tool called the primer pocket uniform tool and a flash hole deburring tool. Some of the deburring tools have a simple drill bit on the end to make the hole more constant. Hope this helps.
I have never seen a 45 ACP case with a small pistol primer. Could that Federal brass be match type cases? that is the only thing I can think of besides the Federeal brass being military brass and it still has the primer pocket crimp on it. Does it say Federal or FCC on the head stamp. FCC would be military while Federal is commercial.
