Nickel Plated Brass more dependable?

No experience with hunting cartridges. However, I got some 5.56 brass years ago that was nickel, reloaded it 4 times and its ready for loading again just like brass cases. It was always shot thru a semi-auto. Bigger rounds may have different results. For pistol, I like nickel; easier to clean and gives long life just like brass...except 32/20 RP brass which doesn't last long. I had some 38 special nickel chip on me in the past but nothing else. This is my experience, others obviously vary. My opinion is use what you can get. I never found nickel more dependable.
