I good friend of mine has 80 once fired 300RUM and 80 once fired 375 H&H nickel plated brass. He would like my assistance in developing accurate loads for his rifles.
Any reloaders out there with first hand knowledge of benefits or problems with nickel plated brass please chime in.
A recent DVD that I watched titled "Highpower Rifle Reloading" by Sierra authored by G. David Tubbs mentions that he does not like to make his brass real smooth and shiny. Tubbs claims that when the cartridge is fired and expands a slick piece of brass doesn't grip the chamber and recoils briskly into the bolt face causeing more wear on the rifle. I'm thinking that the nickel plated brass would have the same effect.
As a hunter I realize that smooth slick brass feeds better. Some people like their reloads to be nice and shiny. Anyone with failures or problems using nickel brass please chime in.
