    Yep. A case gauge is handy for chamber checking dented rounds like this. It's a good tool to have even if you're not a reloader.

    This is a good point, especially for anyone that shoots a variety of ammo and/or is willing to take on a little more risk in their choices.

    I agree, and fwiw..
    I have a case guage that I believe is a bit short on the max spec. It isn't dangerous, but it did cause some short brass life for some reloads I made since the brass was stretching a little bit extra. For all those wanting to buy one, do a little research on the brand and make sure it has good reviews.

    I check my gauges against a few factory rounds. But yeah... If I had a bad one, I'd toss it... or label it "bad gauge"

    One round of ammunition certainly isn't worth the risk.
