    Used ammo?

    I just received two boxes of HST 165gr. in .40 cal. from Ammunition To Go today. First of all I just want to say that their prices are great and shipment was quick. Now I have never ordered from them before nor have I ever used HST ammo, so I am not sure if this typical, but when I opened a box and began filling up my magazines I noticed that many of the casings have a little dent in them and/or are discolored or worn looking. They look like they have been used. Now I am by no means an expert, but I don't ever recall seeing this in other ammunition that I have used, primarily Hydra Shok. Is it typical to see a little dent now and then on brass? Has anyone else experienced this with A.T.G.? Do they sell reloaded HST ammo? I am a little concerned about using this in my EDC. I have not contacted them yet. I was looking for some unbiased feedback first.

    I have ordered from ATG, no such problems.
    You may want to contact them.

    better call ATG they will probably have you send the ammo back so they can check it,the way HST comes packaged I don't see it getting dented in shipping
