Here's what I think is going on: Lyman says the outer case should be .379. My chamber measures at .378. Fired brass is expanding to the chamber at .378. My die is sizing to .374, but the sizing die only reaches the point where the "bulge" is. Therefore, it really isnt a bulge, but the true chamber size.
KYODE, I'm thinking you are right.
