Re: fireforming nickel brass

I don't use nickel, think about it, you have a layer of soft brass between 2 layers of harder, much more brittle nickel, that nickel is harder than your rifles chamber or your dies. but thin enough you can bend it while sizing. after bending it a few times it starts to crack, then flakes off. I don't want nickel steel flakes in my chambers or dies.
When I first had my 25wssm built, the only way to get brass was buy win. supreme ammo and shoot it. the 3rd loading I started seeing the nickel flake off around the neck/shoulder juction. I trashed it and will not use it again.
its pretty and its durable if you may carry it for years, but not good for reloading.

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!
