Was a bit shocked when I saw the last purchase was raw brass.
They will re-assess in 6 months.
Thanks for the info!
Thanks for the info @Robert_M3. It’s the self defense ammunition I use.
Appreciate the heads up, but really hate the delay
I really wonder how much the nickel plating helps? All of my reliable self defense guns seem to have no problems feeding brass cases. I guess the nickel is more corrosion resistant though I don’t have an issue with stored brass ammo here in AZ.
Not saying I don’t prefer nickel plated self defense ammo. They probably feed with slightly less friction and store better. Just don’t know that I would feel that much less safe without it.
It’s sexier, looks like it should be used on werewolves
Happy Birthday brother @Lu-Can and may the good lord grant you health and blessings.
According to what I 'm reading, They are just suspending nickle plating. They will be out without the plating. Am I reading it right?
Yes. The boxes are also labeled brass case.
Hornady bills the plating as making the cartridge more visible in low light conditions. And it does!
I’ m tempted to pick up a box in case it’s ever a collectors item.
Or maybe not… I don’t think I want to remember these days.
Brass cases are nominally thicker than plated.
Perhaps this makes un-plated brass cases stronger?
I certainly get more reloads out of brass cases than plated.
Does this really effect anything?
Plated=less green scum when you’ve left your cartridges in the loops of your Sam Browne too long.
That’s about it, practically speaking.
My opinion anyway.
I do ammo maint. and inspection periodically. Its usually one of those rain day things at the bench. Usually don’t let the defensive ammo stay in gun for to long.
Thank you very much my brother and may God continue to bless you and yours.
Just curious, Do any of the the fellow CCWs out there remove and inspect their carry ammo that tends to stay in their carry guns? Its a 2 week cycle for me. I do fire my carry ammo, But my range stuff is ball generally
Sun is shining today. Family range day it is. I’m RSO today.
What’s the purpose of nickel plating? Do they put it over brass or steel?
Damn. Hadn’t heard this. I just bought three boxes and haven’t even opened or looked at them yet. Finding this particular ammo these days is like panning for gold, so when I see some in stock somewhere I jump on it pretty quickly.
