    I was curious if I could load the Rugular Winchester brass and the metallic stuff the same.

    All brass is metallic... Do you mean nickel-plated?

    If it's a safe load, yes! The nickel plated is a lot harder and might have lesser capacity.

    I have mixed plain brass and nickel plated brass from the same manufacturer with the same load and it all shot the same. I expect .5 MOA or better and will not hunt with a rifle that won't shoot at least 1 MOA.
