Pretty much confirms what most of us already know.

Steel case ammo is fine for range practice.

Brass case ammo for serious social shooting.

I wish I could shoot steel at my local range. They don't allow you to shoot steel case.

It's your money, shoot whatever pulls your chain!

I wouldn't accept the extra cost of brass for range practice.

And BTW, I've had a dozen or so BRASS case factory rounds split on first firing over the last 60 years.

Then you should throw out all your brass cased ammo and stick to aluminum.
