    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.

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

    Same issue I had with Winchester white box .40 cal. Call them and they will send you pre paid shipping label for the bad rounds. Once they recieve them they will send a coupon for a free box.

    Looks as if it may be okay, but even at that price, not worth the risk. I've had several with 'set back' due to feeding problems with a pistol. I dumped them in a bucket of water for a few days, then buried them.
