Is this ammo ok?

I bought 6 boxes of cheap winchester white box range ammo. I had 9 rounds where the primer looks all fucked up. Is it ok to use these?

I wouldn't chance it. 5.56 is a high pressure round, I wouldn't chance it.

I bet if you contact Winchester, they'd replace them for free.

That said, did you happen to save your brass? I'm looking to reload 5.56.
