    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!:D

    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. :D
