Some time ago I began doing background research for a future youtube video on silver bullets (I swear I’ll get around to it eventually – early 2017 hopefully). More than anything, I was curious about where the myth of silver bullets being werewolf killers originated, so I started digging around the internet looking for origin stories.

In addition, nickel cases won’t corrode like their brass counterparts will after handling, providing an extra layer of protection. Electroplating allows for the disposition of a thin layer of nickel onto reloading brass, just like the high end rounds from manufacturers like Hornaydy or Federal, and is easy enough to perform with the right setup and proper safety practices.
