Dents on brass

I'm getting little triangle dents on the lip of my brass when fired from my Glock 19 . Is this normal or should I be concerned?ImageUploadedByTapatalk1440610101.644294.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1440610115.941045.jpg

Comes from them whacking the frame or slide on the way out. Be fixed when they're resized. There maybe a way of adjusting the ejector, but it's not really worth worrying about.
Isn't just Glocks it happens with either. The M1 Rifle, among others, bash the empties too. Some case mouths look like they've been stomped on. Fixed with needle nosed pliers.

Those little dents will iron out as soon as it runs through the expanding die. Often a change in ammo or load will eliminate the dents.
