Mixed Cases

I have W-W cases in both nickel and brass. After weighing a sample of 10 cases of both nickel and brass, my results show they all were within .6grs of each other. Can I make a leap and use the cases interchangably? Or, would that be serious case of brain damage. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

    You can use the same loads, but ones in the nickel cases may have a little different muzzle velocities.

    Nickel's more slippery than brass. All other things being equal, bullets will slide out of a nickel plated mouth a bit easier. So muzzle velocity may be a tiny bit different.

    Yes, please check this out. I'm looking to get 10 or 12 more FPS out of my 30BR.
