BillChunn Posted December 25, 2011 Share Posted December 25, 2011 Ok, the racegun was dropped off at the gunsmith's as he notified me that the 9x19 Major barrel and assorted parts have arrived. It is currently chambered in .38 Super but with brass getting harder to find, it's time to go to 9 Major. I use nickel brass for the Super as it's easier to find when sorting out brass during practice sessions, especially when shooting indoors. Now to the question. Is there any advantage or disadvantage to using nickel plated brass for 9 Major? Currently reloading 9mm for 3 gun competiton and it's running in a Glock 34 and an Olympic Arms AR15-style carbine that is setup to use Glock magazines. I really do not want to get the 9 Major loads confused with the 9mm "minor" loads used in those weapons. Or have the opposite happen, drive three or four hours away to a major match and find out the wrong boxes were grabbed and the ammo doesn't cycle the gun or shoots minor. Yeah, the ammo boxes are properly labeled and everything, but reducing the possibility of an ammo "error" (OK, brain fart) and damaging a weapon or worse is the objective. Thanks for any and all input. HH Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
