    I know I can't get the camera to focus in on it. When I click to take the picture it focuses on the glare instead of the ding. It looks like someone pushed in on the case with their fingernail and I can barely feel it so it isn't very deep.

    That's what I thought at first duke, but it is on all of them. I am thinking it is the extractor hitting it but I just want to make sure they are safe to reload again.

    Hard to tell, but as long as you aren't missing any significant amount of brass there, it should be fine. I would say run them through the resizer and it should mostly disappear. I would give them a try if they were mine. That small of a dent won't affect pressures due to loss of volume.

    It's just a little ding I've resized worse and it seems to come out and fire just fine

    It's nothing to worry about guy. They're exactly right, it's getting dinged on the slide as it ejects. Re-sizing may make it go away (or it may not), but it won't effect the case in terms of loading safety.

    To prove it? If you look on your ejection port, there is probably a little brass scuff where they have been hitting.

    Absolutely nothing to worry about.
