Dented Case Mouths

I am loading 6.5g of Unique in 45 Starline brass w/ 230g Fed. Hydra-Shocks. They are 875fps through the chrono. My gun is a WWI Colt 1911 mfg. in 1918. The gun, though it is old, does not have much wear. I am just beginning to load for this gun. It has been in a safe since the end of WWI. I have changed the spring to a 20# variable Wolf spring. The mags are new My question is why is my brass dented on the case mouths?

David, the case is hitting the ejection port on the way out that it where you are getting the dent. It is possible for the case to bounce back into the action. On most of the newer guns the ejection port is lowered to stop this problem.
