Default Dented ammo, safe to shoot?

I'm pretty sure after firing the dent will pop themselves out but id just like a second opinion. Its 7.62 nato. Id be firing it from my Savage .308. Thanks guys.

If it's max load, I wouldn't shoot it. Any thing less than max load, go ahead and shoot it. It will pop the the dent out when it's done.
