Hey guys, I just purchased a Sako Brown Bear XL chambered in 500 Jeffery! You may have seen my post about it. I don't have the gun in my possession yet, as I placed it on lay away, in order to spread out the rather hefty price tag over several months. Anyway, I have been doing my own reloading since I was a kid.......and I'm looking forward to dialing in some loads for this thumper. My question is............will nickel plated brass cause I problem with rounds wanting to pop out of the magazine?? I've read reviews recently where people were having this problem with some of the larger calibers, and it was with a variety of makes for rifles. I myself have never experienced this, and I wouldn't think it would be a problem, especially since many of the high end dangerous game cartridges that are already loaded, feature nickel plated brass....................can anyone confirm or deny this problem for me, before I drop A TON of money on some shiny, shiny nickel plated goodness!
