What is the thickness of the nickel plating on the R-P nickel-plated brass?

Table of contents


The nickel plating is typically only a few ten thousandths of an inch thick. Prior to the first loading, the inside of the case mouth should be chamfered slightly to remove the plating that builds up due to electrical potential on the edge. This will allow easier seating of the bullets and will not cause scuffing of the bullet's jacket.
