Did these dents appear after firing or after re-sizing? What calibre? Regards JCS

Re-sizing, were fine and after I ran them through the full length sizer they appeared. Not sure if it was the first lot I did and there was too much lube on them. Never had it beforeon other calibres but this is the first time reloading .204
When I have dented cases through too much lube, the dent has always appeared on the shoulder of the case. I have not experienced a dent in the location shown in your pictures.
If your die has a vent hole make sure that it is clear. RCBS dies have a vent hole located in the main thread and it can get blocked with gunge.
If you think it is your lube, then consider changing to the Hornady One-Shot spray lube. I took a bit of convincing but once I tried it I have never used anything else.
Good luck and hope you get it resolved.
Are you certain that the cases were not dented after firing? That is an odd place for a lubrication dent.~Muir
It looks to me as if the die is trying to push the shoulder back and buckling one side of the case.
AT THE AGE OF 50 I DECIDED I WAS GOING TO GROW OLD F***ING DISGRACEFULLY
I once loaded 100 rounds into cases where the die had not been set down enough ..... result, they wouldn't fit into my rifle.
I would say die is in to far and is crushing them,, you must have alot of cam over on your press stroke, atb swaro
Do you think these will be ok to use in rifle if they chamber ok?
