    I'm getting small creases in spent cases from one of my ARs. What would cause this? can they still be reloaded?

    Thanks

    Sorry, can't tell anything from the photo.
    Try a new photo and NOT a BMP format, JPG is good. This should give better and more viewable re-sized photo.

    Without seeing the photos. likely that the ejected round is striking part of the rifle. Unless you have a major crease, those usually iron out on reloading. The M60 MG was famous for flattening one side of the case mouth of fired cartridges. REALLY strong ejector on those.

    A ding in the side of the case body is not uncommon. Generally minor and does not interfere with the loadability of the case. My HK-91 pounded the cases until I put a port buffer on her. Never caused an issue. Resizing removes most of it and the pressures of firing irons out the rest. Ejection promplty leaves a new dent. I may shorten case life by a loading or so, but not a big deal.
