Defective bullets

I've come to the conclusion bullets are like a box of chocolates you never know what your going to get.
Hornady 165 sst
Barnes 180 TTSX (Tip wasn't in the box)
Nosler 180 AB
Nosler 180 Partition PP

    Cool pics.
    Wondered how many of those I will find per thousand in blemished that I just got. Hopefully the GMXs will be better QTY but at 1/2 price I will take the chance. How many of them have you seen in the past? All brands.

    none of these where seconds. This is the only hornady I have ever had a problem with. I've had several barnes TTSX with the tips messed up but never had a problem with the Tsx. I've definitely had more nosler's defected than any other.
