Dinged up 40 S&W brass

Maybe this should go to General or Gunsmithing, but you reloaders might be in the best position to comment. I started shooting and reloading a G23 about 4 or 5 months ago. All the ejected cases (regardless of make) show nicks at the case mouth and V-shaped scar extending from the case mouth for about one-quarter inch down the case. This occurs both with the Glock and a LW barrel. If it wasn't happening with both barrels, I would think maybe it was a loading ramp that needed some smoothing, but?? Anyhow, I have two questions: any ideas of what could be causing the brass damage, and, while I have continued to reload this brass (with no problem that I can see), would any of you forumers have concern with doing that?
