Reloading Aguila 9mm question

Have any of you guys reloaded any Aguila 9mm brass? Compared to all the other brass I've got laying around it has a weird almost knurled or roll mark about 1/4" down from the mouth of the case.

Question, would you have any safety concerns because of that?

I tried to find a picture online to illustrate it, aim surplus' site seems to show it.

I wouldn't worry about it. I just saw a bunch just like that this AM on some Federal 9mm brass if I remember right.

Interesting. I just picked up some 9mm brass at the range a couple of weeks ago with the same "markings"/indentations, only the brass I found was R-P (Remington-Peters).
A lack of planning on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on my part.

It's called 'cannelure'.

The only thing I've experienced from cases so made is separation at the cannelure after too many overpressure reloads reusing that case.

It is added to reduce potential bullet setback; just ask CorBon

I reload them without any problems. Throw them in with the rest of my 9mm cases.
I don't carry a gun to go looking for trouble, I carry a gun in case trouble finds me.
