I would reload them
No marks, no lenght change etc
No flake on the shell
If the nickel was not bonded correctly I could see that..
Powder burn on the outside of the necks is a function of how fast the neck seals
to the chamber , Some rifles smoke the necks more than others no matter what
type of brass you use.
And the nickle peeling/spading will sometimes show up after the first firing and other times
it may take several firings before it starts and some times you will wear the brass out before
anything happens the point is; you never know when it will happen and after 3 or 4 firings
you need to anneal you brass and you can't without ruining it.
Shoot what you like I was just trying to warn you what could/would happen because it
has happened to me on many occasions so even though I also liked the nickle brass I
don't use it any more because just about the time you get it shooting well it screws up
and you have to start all over on load testing plus case prep in a waste of time.
