How does this brass look?

  2. Is there a substantial amount of brass scraped off, or is it just superficial?

    I'm more interested in what would cause that.

    If it straightens out and there is not a chunk taken out of the brass you should be ok. I have reloaded some plinking rounds with some pretty narly rims . Those are the drop and forget rounds. Or pick up and recycle to be PC.

    Load 'em up no problem. My gen 2 G23 makes those look like unfired brass. The dies will straighten those out no problem. Here is what mine does.

    These aren't even the worst of them.

    I would load those with no qualms. The sizing die will straighten them out when they aren't bent any worse than the pictures you show. Sometimes even when they are bent a lot worse. I think you are good to go.

    My 23 used to do the same thing (I have since traded it away). I have reloaded that brass a couple times since then. You should be just fine.

    any idea what causes this type of phenomenon?

    I would also reload brass in that condition. I draw the line when the deformation is a crease vs. a gentle bend as I have plenty of brass to reload and the Apocalypse isn't coming until next year.

    Love that avatar. My gen 3, G23 leaves the same scratches and often a small ding at mid case. Never a problem reloading (multiple times), although in the 40 I do keep the loads in the midrange.

    Some of the flattening of the case mouth can be caused by the case spinning out of the ejection port & hitting the slide just behind the ejection port. It could also be caused by not quite clearing the ejection port on the way out & getting flattened a bit.
