Default 6.5 Creedmoor brass

I buy and sell brass. I stayed away from 6.5CM because. Recently I bought a bunch reasoning that it's settled down price wise. My usual M.O. is to buy it cheap and resell at a small profit. This brass was "cleaned" and ready to load by the seller. There's a clue, no way would I reload these as received. So the first thing I do, even before cleaning, is check quantity and content. Right off the bat, I'm pitching a goodly portion into the scrap bucket. Marks that looked like someone centerpunched the neck with a dull punch, scratches that looked for all the world like a split neck and assorted gouges, some with raised material, all over. Suffice it to say I scrapped the lot since it all came from the same source.

So, is this a cartridge problem or a firearm problem? My first thought was this is another Hornady Hype. But when I looked and compared data in Hodgdon and Hornady manuals, nothing to see, move along. If anything the Hodgdon manual had higher velocities with apple to apple bullets. I was tempted to ask in the overgassed AK thread but there's enough yahoos trying to spoil it already.

My 6.5 CM is in an AR. Brass seems to be normal so far.

ajole, so your brass doesn't have assorted scratches, dings and gouges? I wouldn't have thought so but when I saw these I figured they'd been fired in an "out of time" or overgassed or rough chamber rifle. These were the fugliest I've seen since my H&K91 in the 80s and despite appearance those were perfectly reloadable. I wouldn't gift these 6.5CM to my worst enemy.
