Default Dents in cases???

Hi again. Just shot my first reloads today. This resulted in my brass a lot more dented up than factory loads. Just wondering if you can help me with the why???? With factory loads I might get a mark on one case out of a handful or 2. On my reloads I am getting "almost a dent" on EVERY one. These are .223 55g 27gr of CFM223 with wolf SRmagnum primers. Primers all look normal after shooting. Is this happening due to excessive bump? They were like .006/7(at least I don't have to worry about feeding issues LOL). Like I said this was my first attempt at reloading. ( Fired out of Bushmaster XM15)

The brass is fine.... it'll come out when you resize.

That's a very small dent. I would not even worry about it. Size it like every other case and load it.
