i have just begun reloading 9mm, and have had quite a bit of fun with it. Still working up to a preferred load, but that's part of the fun. But, I would like to move on to load 7mm rem mag as well. However, every shell that I have comes with this small scratch on the shoulder. All of them are identical, same spot, same scratch. It's kind of hard to see, but the scratch is just to the right of the glare. I can feel it just barely when I run my fingernail over it. 7mm shoulder scratch by Oregon13 posted Apr 4, 2016 at 10:29 PM My question is, does this scratch look dangerous to you? To me it looks superficial, but being a new reloader, it is enough to make me question the case. Also, does anybody have an idea where the scratch might come from? I think it occurs on extraction of the shell, but I'm not sure what is causing it.
