the only thing that sucks is I was looking to start reloading the 380 but it would hard to do if this little guy chews up all the brass. I wonder if its a break in kinda thing
Maybe my phone is not revealing your brass's damage, but it doesn't look as though it can't be reloaded. I see normal wear from a semi-auto launching out it's brass. I have loaded semi-auto brass with similar appearances with no issues.the only thing that sucks is I was looking to start reloading the 380 but it would hard to do if this little guy chews up all the brass.

Ha ha you’re like me. Hit those with a sizer and like magic they are good as new for all intensive purposes.I'm willing to be corrected, but I'm not seeing anything that would stop me from reloading those cases. The brass often won't be perfectly round after being ejected and the ejection process often leaves a rub/scrape of some type especially in semi-autos.
If the case had a crack or deep gouge, I would trash the case. However, the pics I see on my phone look fine.
Enjoy your gun and your spent brass.
Ok here's an update got my gun back from ruger today. So I went to the ranger to check her out. They replaced the slide and barrel. It fires good but still chews the brass up I cant figure it out and am not sure what to do
The extractor flew out of the gun at about 500 rounds, but the gun started to malfunction after the first 75 rounds, with various failures to eject & extract.I wonder if the all do it. What kind of issues did yours have? Thanks
