From my experience no. What kind of lube/oil are you using?

I'm betting its a GI model without a lowered and flared ejection port. This is normal.

If it is lowered and flared, its a timing issue, the case mouth is hitting the front of the ejection port prematurely. The extractor needs adjusted.

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

The resizer won't straighten it out?

You said they were dented to the point of not being reusable, later you stated they were oval shaped. The resizing die should straighten that back up.

Ok I see. No they are able to be reused just the oval is significant enough to where I was worried a) my 45 was malfunctioing b) they'd be unusable with further indentation.
