Nickel .223 brass?

Recommended Posts

Used it It's fine. Reloading it I think it's more brittle than brass. As for price I'm not seeing any great demand for brass at this time. That could change of inventory stay low and price increases.

Like Raoul said, nickel rifle brass is ok.  A bit of extra slickness to make sure it feeds reliably in your weapon of choice... I used ta use it quite a bit in 222.  Got a bunch of 300 BO now for my AR pistola.

One good trait of nickel brass is, it will not tarnish like brass does. For really long term storage of loaded ammo in not ideal  conditions. The 223 nickel also makes some nice looking 9mm and 380 shotshell cartridges. Shiny nickel is easier to see in the grass and weeds after firing for old eyes.
