I bought a box of winchester power max bonded 180 grain php to shoot out of my new mod. 70 .300 wsm. I shot the whole box and did get pretty decent groups @100 yds (1.25"). Well I went to do some reloading last night and planned to use this winchester brass but upon close inspection I noticed one of the necks had a small crack. Then I found ANOTHER cracked neck. I ended up finding 7 or 8 cracked cases out of the 20. Upon further inspection I realized that these shells were loaded REAL hot. The primers were actually recessed into the primer pocket and the shoulder of the brass had actually been slightly compacted. This is totally unacceptable and i'd like something to happen. I've never dealt woth winchester customer service. Should they make good and sent me a new box of shells or at least brass? Does anyone have a contact number for winchester? I can't find a number anywhere. Any advice on what to do would be great.
Also, I shot an entire box of federal blue box and none of the cases cracked, so I went ahead and did my reloading using the federal brass.
