Default Heavy, but not heavy?

As I try to get my strength levels back, I seem to be noticing something. Weights that are much lower(say maybe 60% of my old working sets or even best lifts) might be hard, but they don't necessarily feel heavy. Example: 275 3x3 on the deadlift Thursday night. I've done 390 3x3 a few times, and I think I may have even done this with 405, but I'm not sure...I think I tried and failed. So I sort of struggled with the 275, but it didn't actually feel heavy. (And the hardest part was my grip, DOH)

Does this make sense? Is this normal?
