Cases scratched?

Hello,
I am just starting to reload and practicing on .38 special cases. These were once fired cases I had and I tumbled them clean. I am using new Hornady dies. I have resized/deprimed about 200 shells and was surprised to see how much tarnish was pushed down the case, not every one but a few and it seemed mostly the first 50 cases. I also noticed that the cases had quite a few scratches down the length of each shell? All cases had uniform scratches. Is this normal?

Thanks

Were the new dies cleaned before using? You might try cleaning with copper solvent in the event there has been galling.

Yes the new dies were cleaned before using as well as the cases.
