Re: Can nickel plated brass take more pressure?
Bart, federal brass has on average 3% more case capacity than other brands.
Nickel brass is brass coated inside and out with nickel plating, this nickel plating is harder than your dies, or your chamber. on resizing the soft brass in between the hard plating flexes much more, gradualy and usualy around the necks the nickel comes loose and flakes off.
Nickel is good for what its intended for, to load up and carry for months in harsh climates and not corode, thats why its popular with PH's in africa, its not for everyday reloaders/shooters.
