Yes, and if you don't reload I will gladly take them off your hand.
Love the Balistic Tip, Supreme or Black Box Winchesters, use .280, 7mm Mag, .243win, 270win, etc... Have used the Federal Box Nosler 7mm Mag (nickel) did good as well.
Love the Nickel cases for a few reasons...
Reload Subsonic .308 so I can tell them apart (modifed case primer drill or un modified easy to see)
Reload a few different bullets in same caliber .243win, tend to use the nickel in heavier bullets just as a habit to know what I have 100gr is different size than 55 but the 85-90-100 are pretty similar in a group of 100.
Use them in the .223rem to distinguish lighter loads for my wife, that and she thinks they are nicer looking and cleaner.
Use them in pistol 147gr 9mm subsonic...to tell them apart and find my brass the easiest indoors...
Use them in .357 max loading...to tell the difference
Use them in .280 for top end loads, 7mm mag as well for color coating loads.
Use them in .300win mag to tell which gun they were chambered in so I don't mix them up.
Use them in 40s&w with Lead bullets (think they look neat) and they tend to be easy to spot.
I do like the look of the nickel vs copper or nickel vs bronze or solids.
I have become infatuated with the 150gr berry's flat point copper plated bullet for the .308 and how nice it looks loaded in a nickel case...
My second love would be the 200gr B416 Lapua Bullet Loaded in a nickel case followed their by the 300WM loaded with an AP or Balistic Tip or Bronze Solid...
I would have to say that I am now mostly motivated by look (sexy and clean) and ease of finding brass, I have a few spitters if you know what I mean that can shoot brass as much as 30+ feet and the nickel is the easiest to find, I have no problems with crimping it and it lasts more reloads without the issues and being able to use it as a color coding system or way to tell the loads apart.
If I shoot in a group It is easy to tell which are mine if two have nickel I just sharpie pen the base and wipe it off later.
