It could also make it worse. The case walls are tapered, thinner at the mouth and considerably thicker at the web and case head.

I'm thinking the basic problem is the 250-grain bullet, necessarily longer than anything considered "standard" in .45ACP, when seated to OAL that will function in the magazine and feed into the chamber the OP might be dealing with a bulged case well behind the case mouth area that could resist chambering fully.

If that is the case there are two possible solutions. One would be having the chamber reamed to provide additional clearance. The other would be inside neck reaming of the cases to allow deeper seating without bulging the case walls.
