You won't find (almost...) a more sharply divided subject than steel vs brass.

Just to clarify... it's just the case that is steel or brass, the bullet is copper or another suitable alloy therof.

Typically, steel-cased ammo is Commie-bloc stuff with the quality control that goes with it, but recently Hornady, of all people, came out with steel-cased ammo as well.

Personally, I don't use it. I've not found it's accuracy to be what I want it to be, and, at least with my Socom, I don't care for the report (read: 8" flame blowing up out of the muzzle brake.)

Some here reload it, I think it's a waste of time, but that is my opinion. Does it wear the chamber more? I don't know, I'm not going to find out. I will tell you the only FTF's (failure to feed) I ever had with my Socom were with steel-cased Monarch (Academy Sporting Goods house brand...) 3 FTF's in 100 rounds.

I'll stick with brass-cased ammo, reloadable or not, thank you very much.... but, again, that is my opinion.
