Gents,

just sorting through some 3 x fired Hornady 6.5 CM and noticed some striations on the shoulder of the cartridge.

i suspect this is from a poorly lubed case and the expander ball compressing it.

has anyone seen this before and have an idea whether these would be safe to fire?

Should be safe, consider Redding has a product to inside neck lube, dry mica and some ball media just dip in and if the case body is already lubed size away. Could be lube dents? Perhaps clean the die body to remove excess lube and stiff they collect. Best wishes for good shooting.
