Brass Prep Advise Please

I have about 50 cases, each fired one time from my 270 win which were used for developing a new load. Unfortunately I decapped/resized them at different times with slightly differing settings.

The shoulder bumps vary by 0.005" and the length of the neck crimps vary by as much as 0.05".

should I reload and use them for shooting/hunting as they are, or should I run them through the die/ram again to uniform them?

Would they be accurate as they are?

Would running them through the die again be overly hard on the brass?

thanks much for feedback!

As long as you haven't created any headspace issues with your sizing cut excessively short necks, I would run them as foulers and regular old hunting loads. If I am reading you right, factory fodder can have similar variation.
