OK for reloading?
 
I was at the range today and while I was picking up brass, ran into almost 600 Barnaul 9mm brass (russian made ammo).
I would like to know if any of you have used this brass for reloading.
They say it is a brass plated steel case. Thanks for any info you can provide me with.

I wouldn't run them through my dies! I have resized nickle plated brass for my .357 - but pistol dies are carbide.

Check if they are Berdan primed case, but if they are military steel cases chuck them out, you can reload them but they will knacker your dies......:)
