Nickel plating is used prior to chrome plating on various items etcI usually just use regular brass but I have an AR style rifle in 7mm-08. It scratches the brass really bad when it ejects the casing. I’m hoping the harder nickel plating will stop the scratching. I just ordered 100 Rds of Starline nickel plated brass so we’ll see if it help my problem. MidwayUSA predicted like three weeks for it to get here so I hope that’s not the case.
I was thinking of gettin the Starline nickel plated for my 7mm-08 but I bought some Federal premium ammo instead and will use their nichel plated brass instead. Theirs has always been good quality.Thank you for all of your replies. I’m hoping the brass shows up tonight. Will have to work for another week before I get to try any of it.
