I do, all the time (I am assuming you are talking about pistol brass). Make sure you check the case mouths for flaking, especially during the mouth belling step for pistol brass. If you bell them too much the nickel tends to flake off. If they start to flake, toss them as you do not want nickel flakes on your pistol dies. Just keep your eye on them.

I have nickel brass .45 ACP, .45 Colt and .357 Mag. that I've loaded 6 or more times and they are fine. I prefer regular brass, but if you've got them, load 'em up. cheers

I load .30-06 nickel brass as I got 50 from a friend a long time ago. They do just fine.

Watch the case mouths and the shoulders for any signs of flaking. I've never had one start to flake, just keep it in mind.

Like they said, watch for flaking. Had some 243 that started flaking on neck and shoulder after first reload. Chamber was a little large in that rifle, Remington Mowhawk.

Very unsafe! Don't risk it, send them all to me and I will safely dispose of them for you.
