    Brass seals the chamber better, and has natural lubricity for feed and eject on steel chambers.

    The non-brass stuff works but not so much for reloading purposes.

    I will not shoot steel casings and I do not buy them because reloading is more difficult and not monetarily advantageous.
    They say you can reload them twice at most. I don't believe it since the coating is good for one firing. I am not willing to try.
    Steel casings are coated because the steel is very hard and can over time cause excessive wear. The coating is good for only one shot.
    Brass has worked for me for 50 years quite well and the cost differential is not that much.
    When things are going boom saving money isn't a priority for me.

    Welcome to the form

    I moved this to Factory Loads since it is about factory ammo.

    I prefer Brass cased ammo because I like it for relaoding. I know many people that shoot steel case ammo with no issues.

    I prefer brass as a reloader. But I've found both steel and aluminum on the cheap and will shoot that as well. Anything will do for plinking as far as I'm concerned. Never had any problems caused by case material.

    I prefer brass but I will shoot aluminum and have tried steel but don't make a habit of it. I generally buy 9mm at Walmart and Federal is good range ammo. I was buying aluminum as it was cheaper, but the brass is now only a few cents different so that's what I get.
    All the reasons others posted by others above are correct.

    Brass is best, aluminum second best, and steel third. I've shot all three, but these days I really only use steel in Russian military weapons that were designed with steel cased ammo in mind.
