    On the 29th round it has a dent where the device pushed the round down, pretty significant too about 1/16 of an inch indention.

    Prob not going to shot that round but definitely will just be loading to 27 rds and handloading last 3

    Honestly, a smallish dent like that on the body of the cartridge is probably fine. As long as it isn't forward at the shoulder or the neck, where it can affect chambering and headspace, it's probably just going to get pushed out when the round is fired anyway.

    I just push them straight down when loading. I only use the maglula if I want to unload.
