I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing to only deload 40 at the bottom. You only really want marginal weight increase at the top for raw anyway. This way you get a bit more bottom end work in.

If the purpose is just to increase your raw squat then chains are just a tool for that, no need to hit mega chained numbers over your raw max imo.
I was thinking about the same thing. That slight difference of having a 40ish pound deload in the hole helped with confidence a bit. Made putting 585 on my back easier. I might play around with both and perhaps use one as a lighter day.
