Some time ago I purchased a case of 4500 .223 Winchester brass. I had one such flash hole less case in the bunch. I'd say you got a 1/4500 bad one.

This is normal, get over it and move on.

It's been a while since I've seen Winchester Brass marked W W SUPER.

With or without the flash hole.

I bought some Win Q3131 a while back and one box (of 20) had TWO rounds without rims. One had a barely cut extractor groove and the other had nothing below the groove but the primer pocket. Stuff happens. Yours is easily fixed-or a souvenir.

just pop in a magnum primer and you should be ok

5% scrap is about right for new Winchester Super X brass. I only buy it when there is no alternative, I.E. no range brass available.

De-capping is gonna be a bitch, though. Better use a berdan de-capper.

Just goes to show that manufacturing and quality control mistakes happen. But, you already knew that...

I would keep it as one of the odd pieces of brass you are likely to never stumble upon again. It'll definitely make a good conversation piece.

Well I found another in the same batch that had an overlap in the neck material when they formed the case.

I think for every 1 round you find that's faulty in a bag of over the counter (super expensive) brass, you should get another 10 rounds for free. If one of those is faulty, an additional 100 for each.

Contact Winchester and see if they will replace it.
