What's the advantage of nickel cases?

No advantage really except if I drop one in the woods it's a little easier to find. I also use nickel cases to identify
certain loads contained within. The just look nice also.

I think my LEO friend indicated that stored in your firearm, the nickle will not attract moisture like a brass case will. They certainly don't get as many reloadings out of them...

I have heard some members say the nickel can flake off and ruin or scratch dies. I have dealt with a few of them and had no problems.

And they look mighty nice with your 336SS. ;D

(and the leather won't mess with the nickel plating as said before)
