Default On a recent trip to the range....

I was picking up my brass from my M1 Garand and noticed some of the brass looked like this:





Notice how the brass is bent on the neck of the case?

Now my question is - is that normal?

(I haven't had a chance to look at all the brass.)

Still ok to reload but annealing will help it last longer when worked extra like that.

A resize will fix that. No big deal.
