There are pros and cons with the nickle cases, The pros are that they don't corrode and need
polishing,They size really well, and as long as you weight sort them they shoot well, plus they
are easy to find if you eject one on the ground. also they don't seem to shave as easy when
The cons are= They cant be neck turned unless you turn the inside, after some resizing (The
amount varies based on the quality of the plating) they may start to flake or peel.
They are real good to use if you shoot two different loads/bullet weight by loading one with
nickel and one with brass so that in the field you can switch loads with confidence that you
have the right load for the job.
Just my take on nickle cases
