I ordered 1000 remington cases from Cabela's. I have neck sized and deburred the flashholes on about 600 so far, and not found a bad case. These are also for the 204

Re: Remminton Brass is $!@$

The dents are common and from my experience they don't hurt anything. It has to do with the way they tumble their cases in large quantities. Usually they come with a little orange piece of paper warning about this, though that may be a Midway thing.

Split necks also happen. I've ordered may hundreds of RUM cases and usually get a few split necks. I've also had Lapua brass in .243 with split necks (2 of 100). Toss them in the junk bin and move on.
