Does the nickel plating on brass increase the case length?

Table of contents


The plating does not affect the overall length to any degree of significance. The plating also eliminates the oxidation which causes the brass to tarnish. However, since the plating is a little harder than the brass and the brass surface is etched slightly to hold the nickel, case life is typically a little shorter than with a plain brass case.
