    Looks like someone got them stuck and pulled them out with pliers

    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

    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.

    Its not uncommon to see dents in any bulk shipped brass. It is also not uncommon to see neck flaws in any brand of brass. In your case, you are seeing a higher number then average which I suspect is just bad luck. I suspect your next 50 brass will be better.

    IMO small dents is not a reason to throw them away (it is a reason to be mad though!). I have had several wsm cases that I used way too much lube on and got quite a bit of denting on the shoulder. Loaded them up with a light load and fired them. after a couple loadings you can't tell the difference from the rest.
