Default .45 acp small primer vs large

I'm in the process of getting my reloading room set up. I've only done a tiny bit of loading and that was a decade ago. I'm working out of the Speer Reloading Manual number 13, and a couple other brands from the same time period.

What I'm wondering is what effect the small primers have had on the .45 acp loads? Have they changed or can I still use the data in my book?

Here's an older thread on this. I believe the bottom line was to use the standard data with both primers.
