A friend new to shooting recently bought a couple of brand new rifles from a local RFD and the RFD sold him rounds to go with the rifle (a few boxes) winchester at £27 a box.
No issue there (even though I had said just to get one box to see if the rifle likes it)
He asked me to help zero the rifle so I went out and he put a few rounds through in the usual order. I was picking up the empties as he ejected them and it wasn't until I took them out of my jacket pocket later i noticed the brass is pretty corroded and has some pretty severe dents and marks on the outer OD of the brass....if it was on the bottom rim where the material is pretty thick I wouldn't be so concerned but somne of the damage is right the way up the case....
Seems like these rounds must've been lying about in damp conditions for quite some time!
