    I ran over my bullets....

    Coming home today I ran over part of my delivery from Cheaper than Dirt. Box of '38's partially squished when I opened the shipping box. Surprising they look fine. Anything I should look for in particluar? Seating seems fine, not dents, etc....

    As long as there is no damage to the rounds, crushed, squashed, dented or other damage they should be safe to use.

    I would also check the bullet seating with a micrometer just be be certain. If the cartridges weren't sealed it may not be apparent with the naked eye.

    Yeah....but whenever I order ammo on-line the boxes take a beating from internal packing. Guess the guy doesn't know he's got a about 1000 rounds he's dropping down....

    So after closer inspection every round appears to be fine. I ran over a corner, and in two boxes the plastic trays are cracked and deformed on one end. But seating, casing wall, etc. - all appear fine and chamber fine. Whoda thunk?

    I have one of these Dillon Precision: Reloaders, Reloading Equipment, Bullet Reloading, Bullet Reloaders to test my reloads to if they'll feed/seat properly.

    I also use one to check my factory carry ammo.

    That's a handy device but it won't tell you if a bullet has been pushed further into the case.

    This reminds me of someone i knew, he cast a 1000+ bullets, stuck them in a huge can and dropped it. He then melted them back down and recast them because he thought their molecular structure would have been put off balance by being jarred when they hit the floor, or some weird thing.

    So just to be safe you should send those cartridges to me i will take care of them for you.

    Good Lord. Molecular structure? That should keep me laughing for days.
