    I have never reloaded, and probably won't, but I have been picking up my .45GAP brass and have around 350 or so of once fired mixed brass / nickel.
    The question is, do I save the nickel ones too, are they reloadable?

    The nickel casings are brittle and often split at the mouth. Other than that, they are re-loadable.

    Like DannyR stated they can become brittle. I download the nickle cases instead so they last longer. They sure go through the sizer die nice though.
