From Atomic's FAQ pagehttp://atomicammunition.com/faqs.html)

"Will this ammunition cause wear and tear on my firearm?
Any ammunition will cause wear and tear on your firearm. Atomic ammunition is powerful and will accelerate the wear on your gun. We recommend replacing the recoil spring on pistols with increased power springs and checking all parts regularly."

That right there would make me FLEE from their products. Assuming the general statement at hand, what, are they loading +P 308 Win? :P

The neck splits look like bad annealing, if your rifle doesn't do that with other quality ammo (Winchester, Remington, Lake City, whatever...) The splits at the head/rim are could be bad annealing or poor alloying, or both. I wouldn't shoot that stuff in any of my rifles. I might pull it down and use the projectiles for something else, but that's it.
