OOPS, Case mouths all dented. What to do?

So I had a couple hundred cases all primed and ready to load, and inadvertantly dumped the cases off the bench, and onto the concrete floor. (yeah, I already know I'm a Klutz!)

Now a significant number of the case mouths are no longer round, what's the best way to correct that?


The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

Lube them and resize without a decaping pin.

Try just running them over the expander ball in the die, to round them back out. If it opens them to much for proper neck tension when seating a bullet, due as Magman said and take out decapping pin and resize.
