Default 1911 ammo ~ shell casing issue

Hello just a quick question. When I shoot Winchester target ammo in my springfield champion 45 the shell case becomes indented after the shot any ideas as to why? Its to the point of not being reusable

This sounds more like an extractor issue rather than the ammo.

Ok thanks. I've liked for damage and all seems well. I did shoot a box of herters target ammo with the steel casings could those lead to issues with the extractor

A box of ammo shouldn't have caused the extractor to "go bad".
Sounds like it may be too tight. Send an email to the CS for them and they'll take care of you.

On the casing near the crimp where the casing and bullet meet instead of being round it looks more like an oval on one side.. Multiple shots same result

Different ammo has different pressures and affect the action of the slide differently.

Look at the slide and see if there are marks near the ejection port.

There are not any nicks our dings. A little wear on the shell base grip near the action but seems in line with everything else. It only does it with the win ammo. I shot another in it this am and nothing.

I also had what I think was to much oil in the action when I was shooting.. Could this lead to the action closing to fast upon ejection
