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?
Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined…. The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.”
– Patrick Henry, Speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 5, 1778
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.
