Repro door hinge plate issue

I have a dynacorn repro door for for 68 that I am trying to install. Upon trying to fit the hinges I realized that the plates in the door have too small of holes. I did some searching and read that people have had luck drilling and tapping the holes. I drilled and tapped the holes to 5/16"-18 which is the size the old bolt threaded into at Home Depot, however, the bolts still don't fit. What the heck did I do wrong?

I just went and got new flange bolts. Everything bolted up after that. The factory bolts have that weird un-threaded portion at the tip and thats what was causing the issue.
