Heard from a friend tonight that nickel-plated brass supposedly can "mar" or "scratch" a semi-auto's chamber. That sounds like BS to me, but I figured I'd ask. Hopefully Randall will chime in.

I call BS also. Nickel is a soft metal. I fail to see how it could damage a steel chamber. Nickel brass cases don't corrode but they seem to have a shorter service life.

Never heard of it damaging the firearm but they will wear out reloading dies faster from what Ive read
