I really get upset when I hear folks talking about ironing out a bulged case. What causes the case to bulge?
In most instances it is the unsupported portion of the chamber that allows this to happen. Two possibilities, as I see it. One, the bulged case may have been in perfect condition but the load could have been too hot causing the bulge. In this instance, the case has been weakened but the bulge itself. It is further weakened by the ironing out. This case should be scrapped. Two, if the case was weak in the first place, you can consider yourself lucky your gun didnít do a self disassembly.
In my opinion, reloading an ironed out bulged case is just asking for trouble.
