I think the difference between the two procedures may be that the elastic distribution with bolts further from the centroid having more force is intended for use with allowable stress design while the inelastic procedure with all bolts having the same force is intended for use with limit states or LRFD design procedures.  Review your code with that thought in mind and you may have your answer.
You might want to use the ultimate strength method that's already in the Manual if you're going for ultimate strength.
