Cruising around for bullets which are in short supply and ran across nickel plated bullets at Midway USA. Are these harder on a bore than copper or lead?

I would think those are cupronickel bullets. Mostly copper with some nickel.

There might be slightly more wear, but I wouldn't worry about it. There have been many military rifle cartridges fired with cupronickel clad lead bullets.
