Right now I have about 80 pieces but cliff cargill said he has some brass I'm gonna pick up. Dad wants to get some so I think he and I are gonna send it off. I could send yours with mine to save you shipping one way. Probably put it in a flat rate usps box.

I sent an email to mastercast.. My question was if I send MY brass and request I get it back loaded can they do it. Response was no. All my brass is nickle plated... I know its not a big deal. I checked with Delta ... they are on back order for dern near everything .38-.357... really kinda sad.

There is no real advantage to nickel plated brass, except it does not turn green in a leather ctg belt. The nickel plated brass will crack at the neck faster than non-plated brass, reducing the number of times it can be reloaded.

I do agree; especially in 38 or 357!

I bought 500 .45 Colt Nickel cases by Remington. They lasted only 3 shots before 30% of them cracked at the neck. I have had no problem with rifle cases that are nickel plated.

Remington replaced the 500 cases with brass non-nickeled cases when I sent them an email and a large number of cracked cases.

Well I don't doubt your experiences however they are not mine. Most of my .38 are on their 3rd and 4th reload maybe even 5th reload, and most of them were bought as "once shot" brass to begin with. To be sure, after each shooting session I have to go through and and cull out busted cases. I have Federal cases that are so old the nickel is wearing off. My understanding is that nickel cases require less lubrication when reloading as they are simply "slicker".

A couple weeks ago, I got some 38 brass from a fellow that posts on The Firing Line. I can find his info and get it to yall if you want it. He was a good guy to deal with.

Another option on getting some brass is to just bite the bullet and buy some new loaded ammo. 500 or 1000 rounds at a time brings the cost down. That way you know the brass is new. It's a pretty good initial outlay, but when you figure you can reload the brass many many times, it helps to justify the cost.
