Federal 410 - bulged brass

We shoot 410’s quite a bit. Recently, we find the brass bulging at the base around the primer. No problem with Herter’s, Remington, or Winchester. We do reload, but these were new shells. Any ideas?

Factory defective undoubtedly. Is the primer below flush? I found that with Winchester AAs in 20 gauge once years ago.

Edited to add:

A picture or two would help a lot to diagnose this.
