Default Defective or ok to use?

Got these winchester .45's, the one on the right has the bullet shoved in further than the rest and the case has ever so slightly bulged and you can see where the edge of the bullet is from the outside of the case, ok to use or toss it? FTF possibly? Thoughts?

Don't shoot it. Break it apart and burn the powder. Or if you reload redo it.

Two pairs of pliers. Use one to hold the casing and the other pair to twist it out. Go side to side till it comes out. Since you don't have bullet pullers this bout the only way you can pull it apart wo shooting it.

Set up the iffy round at 25 yards primer facing you. Get a .22 and pow! Problem solved

Get the lot number and ammunition information from the box it came in and report it back to the manufacturer.
