    I don't know if Starline sells nickel in 1,000 pieces. Couldn't reach them on Friday. Has anyone ordered any recently from anyone else?

    why do you want nickel? Nickel does not last as long as brass.

    That's what I thought but not my experience. About 90% of my case separations have been with regular brass; very few with the nickel. These were not fired in my G20. They are from my select fire CA89-10.

    I order thru MidWay USA and get the cases faster than from Starline. They have brass and nickle plated in 100, 500 and 1,000 piece lots I believe.
    Price is near the same IIRC.

    I believe Midway is the cheapest and only supplier I have found that sells 10mm nickel plated brass. Be prepared to wait since its always on backorder. I ordered 1000 on 3/1 and my order shipped last Friday 4/22.
    Starline will sell nickel brass for 10mm in minimum lots of 8,000 @ 162.00 /1000 Thats what they told me when I wanted to buy directly from them and that is what is on their website.

    texas: Just ordered 1,000 from Midway & they are in stock at $187.99 but with a coupon for $20 off $200 not a bad price!
