Default AR Reloading brass question.

About I start reloading my first .223 rounds. All my cases are from factory ammo that I have shot and picked up. After running them through the tumbler tonight I noticed all my brass has a little dent in them, every case has it and they are all in the same spot. I'm shooting it out of a AR so I assume it's from my brass deflector and that's just where the case hit but has anyone else experienced this? And more importantly will the brass be okay to reload and shoot?

You are correct small dent is from the brass deflector. Once you fire them again it will be gone for about a millisecond. It is not going to hurt anything.

Better send them all to me. I'll run them through my bolt gun to take the dent out for you. I'll even retumble them for you before I send them back dent free.

The brass is A-Ok. I have read that if you attach a piece of Velcro tape ( the fuzzy portion ) over the deflector it helps a lot.

Good to hear. That's what I figured but being new to reloading I wanted to be sure.
