i pick up a box of reloads that i did 15 years ago.i was using a 160 grain bullet and 2400 powder.i know i was within one tenth of a grain max charge but i have never had a problem with this charge seemedd like the cases would stick somewhat until gun cooled down,anybody else run into this problem with nickel cases. old semperfi

probably has more to do with the near-max charge than the nickel case, typically the nickel case will extract a little easier.
I agree with woolley, probably not the fault of the nickeld brass.

My full-tilt .357 deer loads (170gr Sierra pushed with AA#9) are on the stiff side and I've used both nickel and plain brass for them. No difference in extraction between the two.
