    I just received some .40 factory reloads from Georgia Arms, and it seems like quite a few of them have these indentations on the ridge of the bullet. Are these going to have a severe effect on performance of the rounds? Cause damage to a gun? I'm not expecting wonders from factory reloads, but a relatively large flaw like that raised my eyebrows. :confused:

    That is a new one on me. I would email the manufacturer with the pictures. Damege to gun- not likely. Unable to hit broad side of a barn standing inside barn? Likely.

    It looks like they had some sort of hard debris stuck in the bullet cup in their seating die. Like C3, I doubt that they will hurt your pistol barrel, but accuracy will likely suffer.

    I'd send Georgia Arms the photos and ask for a refund.

    There are few things you can do to the nose of a bullet that will adversely effect the accuracy. The base of the bullet is a different thing entirely. THat kind of damage to the base would be an accuracy killer.

    If Georgia Arms is even remotely worth their salt, they will send you at least a box of ammo for your trouble.
