Full length resize will sort it I bought 50 458 win mag cases they were all dented and they all full sized perfectly.
AT THE AGE OF 50 I DECIDED I WAS GOING TO GROW OLD F***ING DISGRACEFULLY
Sweet, I thought so but at £2 a pop I don't wanna ruin one! Cheers mate.
The one in the photo looks ok but just go easy on the down stroke because if they are any that are dented worse than that one the lip could catch the expander ball hard and end up making it worse!
Cool, a couple look like teardrops! I'll be particularly gentle with those then
Jim - If any won't start in your die - (as already said go very steady as you raise the ram) find a bit of steel bar or cut off bolt with a parallel shank, that will go into the neck past the ding & roll it out on a smooth hard surface - (flat hardwood or similar is optimum) by hand a bit like using a rolling pin. Keep the lip over the edge of your base board so the outside diameter of the case is fully supported. Try not to let it skid & don't hammer it. - Softly softly does it. As its new brass it is going to be soft so quite easy to do. Then full length size as normal.
p.s. A Lee Universal case expanding die could also be used to gently push the ding out but you need to control the depth carefully to avoid over expanding the neck.

That's handy as I have a expander die coming to me soon! Cheers for the help Ian. Need t get this thing going!
just open them up and round them with a suitably sized bullet tip first
Hand turn them on the nose section of a pair of needle nose pliers.~Muir
PS:You should always FL resize new, unprimed brass.
