I occasionally have a 22lr so mangled I won't chamber and fire it, but it has gotta be pretty nasty looking. I chamber and fire ones that get smashed on feed lips, or that tried to double feed, etc. pretty much if it'll chamber I'll fire it. For 22lr

Other stuff maybe not. Not saying 22lr can't blow up a rifle and hurt or kill you, but the difference between a blow back action 22lr and a gas operated (that won't if plugged) .223 or .308 is just ridiculous in terms of pressures and energy involved.

I think the real question is: How many that looked like did you shoot without knowing?

More than we think, I bet.

Is this "shoot-able"?

That tiny dent wont affect it in the least little bit.
I wouldn't think twice about shooting it.

Yep. I use a lot of surplus brass and dents are common. If they chamber fine, they will shoot fine.

Shooting tin cans with a plinking gun fine but I wouldn't use it in a match rifle or with money riding on the score.

A couple of years back I took a bag of 22lr that had been my grandfathers and shot it. Ammo had to be around 35+ years old. Not the smartest thing I've ever done but 7/10 went bang and no squibs so...go for it.

Centerfire, if it will chamber, and is not creased, I will shoot it.

Heck, I've picked up free .22 "range ammo" someone dropped that looked a lot worse than that and fired it in a Savage MK-II bolt rifle.

It's been seven weeks since the OP asked the question. Have we heard back from him? Did he ever shoot it? Did he get his $2 back from Cabelas? ...

Maybe he tried it and shouldn't have.
