    nickel cases

    Does anybody on here use nickel plated cases.Just wondered if there were ant pros or cons to them?

    Never used them Mick but i believe they tend to be a bit on the brittle side for reloading, better off with straight brass.

    I use them in handgun and rifle, both. The rifle calibers I use them in are 8x57 Mauser and .222 Remington. Other than that they stay shiny, attract less grit and supposedly are immune to verdigris, I see no advantage to them. I bought mine because they were inexpensive and the .222 were Federal Match Bench Rest cases; now long discontinued.~Muir
