Hey everyone is there anyone who has a phone # or email addy for winchester ammo? The other day i bought a box of winchester superx 40 gr jhps with the gray tip at wall mart and went out to shoot gophers and after about 20 shots i picked a shell out of the box and felt a sharp edge on this shell.On inspection i found that the jacket was pushed back away from the bullet on one side of the case and a small crack between the bullet and case but not big enough for the powder to escape.On the side the wrinkle you could feel with your fingers.My god im glad i didnt chamber and shoot this cartridge.Will attach a picture once i figure out how lol..Yours truely shrewster56

Good you caught it.
Though if I understand what you're describing, I'm pretty sure that if you were able to chamber it (I mean - without knowing), it probably would have fired without causing any damage.
