    That is just ugly, but seems to be happening more and more with them.
    Hell, I was there!

    That's bad, when quality control is like that I'd think twice about buying from them.

    Are they that careless with their loaded ammo?

    Ugh. NOT good. I would expect more excitement than I like at ALL should someone load & fire one of those... Another brand I had 1 in a few thousand that had a neck almost-crack flaw (I forget the name of those - like the rightmost of those 5 rounds) in 243 but I'll just turn that into a 45ACP shotshell & light powder load due to the rifle primer it came with... Definitely they need to fix their act & replace those.

    Last Winchester brass I bought was .220 Swift 200 case ( 2 100 packs). I started loading it and got the first bullet seated. decided to check it in my Number 1 ( I had measured shoulder height and checked sized cases in the rifle) The loaded round wouldn't chamber. the necks were all to thick and had to be neck turned to be useable in my rifle. Ive talked to several that have had issues with Win brass the last few years..
