Do these case necks look ok to load?

This is from a bag of winchester 300 wsm brass purchased brand new (zero reloads so far). Shoulders show these vertical dings that catch the nail (barely) and some cases only have one of them, others might have 6-7 vertical dings. Only appeared on about 12 of a bag of fifty...

I think I'd give Winchester a call or email for some type refund/replacement. I believe I've seen posts here about bad brass and Winchester making it right by replacing or reinbursment.

Not a thing wrong with them once you perform normal case prep. Winchester brass never looks pretty before it is fire formed. Unless it is a lot worse than what the photos show I wouldn't even give it a second thought! Prep and load!

I would size them as usual, then polish the neck on the inside with steel wool on an old cleaning brush and using the Lee Case Trimmer Shell holder fitted in a drill.

I just received 2 bags of 270wsm with the same problem. 18 total bad cases out of 100. Of the 18, 15 necks were cracked.

New, never fired. A couple of them also had oval looking flash holes.
