The powder doesn't know what shape the nose of the bullet is unless it makes a good deal of difference in the seating depth. You are talking about below maximum loads and will be fine.

I would not be looking for Hornady's rifle "pressure signs" in a pistol running about 1/3 the chamber pressure. I once scared myself with cratered primers in a 9mm handbook load until I realized I had used soft Federal primers that I normally reserve for revolvers. Winchester primers looked normal and the load double checked correct.
I have a few facts and a lot of opinions.
