At the range yesterday I noticed one of my .38 reloads ended up peeling the plating off the case. Thew load was a mild one, and there were no signs of overcharging on any of the other rounds. Does this sort of thing happen with nickel cases as they age? Is it the result of repeated cycles of stretching & resizing?
