what would you do?

I picked up a bag of 100 brass, (mfg undisclosed), of which 6 of them had some nasty tooling marks on the necks. I will not be using these brass.

What would you do, just cull the 6 pieces and for get about it.
or
Contact the company and complain.

Not much of a complainer but damn for the cost it should be better than that.

    If it were expensive brass, then I would complain. If it were cheap brass, then I would chuck it and forget it.

    If you PAID for 100 pieces, then you should get 100 PIECES of usable brass. Manufacturer doesn't matter to me. I'm getting 6 more USABLE cases!!

    Why will you not disclose the maker?

    i just didn't want a ******* match is all. I basically wanted a level playing field no matter how much i payed for brass. I'm not going to be the one who give a mfg a bad name. I'm a decent fellow and a lot of people read these forums.

    Thanks guys,

    I complained to Nosler about some crooked brass (.004-.007" TIR).

    They promptly replaced it eventhough I had shot the better part of the lot.

    Anything can happen with large production volumes and the Mfg needs to know about it.

    They should've caught it. But, they can't fix it if you don't tell them.

    Looking at the picture it almost looks like it's just a rolled over piece that would come out when chamfered. If not I'd call 'em.
