The gunsmith said he thinks it was a feeding malfunction... That maybe the case wasn't against the back of the magazine and when it loaded, it pulled it in at a bigger angle that what it would normally do.
He said everything else looked fine though, so we're good to go for this weekend.
From the pictures I would have to disagree it still looks like the case is still flared and the cartridge did not go through the crimping part of the process. I have seen this many times when reloading and I was interupted in mid process, I usually catch these as soon as I do it. I can easily see this happening in a high volume process and getting past the visual inspection. I don't think there is anything wrong with your gun or the way the bullets were in the mag. It is a good practice to seat the bullets in the magazine by smacking it on the heal of your hand.
