I've smashed up bullets chambering them. Big, deep dents.

What else am I going to do right? So I fired them off.

Hit with the rest of the group, go figure

I have a Cam-Lock puller for each caliber I shoot with the proper insert installed and love them, I pulled 300 factory Hornady 40gr V-Max(got 500 left I might just shoot and see how they do) for the brass since the bullet is a little light for my 1:8 twist and it didn't leave a single mark on even one bullet(reloaded the brass with Hornady 75gr BTHP's )

worse case senior you can run the bullet through a resizing die

see handloader magazine article last year the writer shot damaged bullets and almost all shot to the same point of impact out to 200 yards EXCEPT those with a damaged base.

Did you try shooting them, or you just figured they wouldn't work? Try some before you pull any more. They might surprise you.
