Well, nickel is harder than brass, etc., and some small particles tend to come off... And go down the bore at great speed...

It's also easier to see imperfections with "naked" brass. Annealing is easier, etc... And don't even think about neck turning plated brass...
Job hunting, but helping a friend out at - and learning the finer aspects of becoming a precision machinist.

And making the world's greatest bottle openers!
