I wouldn't worry at all about shooting it.

You run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking, racing around to come up behind you again, the sun is the same in a relative way but you’re older, shorter of breath and one day closer to death…

Thanks for getting me up to speed on this

About 40 of the rounds (which have been segregated from the rest of the cartridges) have patches of rust-colored discoloration on them as shown here, though they still feel smooth to the touch; what does that indicate?
