You're absolute right. Spell check got me and I didn't proof read my post.

Thanks for asking the question. It's been rattling around in my brain as well as I ponder the cost of ammo.

Steel is the cheapest way to make a case, and that is why you see that metal used. It won't hurt your gun though, the chamber is pretty hard and rugged, so it won't even notice.
Brass is malleable, it will flex under pressure, but it can be brought back into good form. Steel is a one-time use case, it can't be brought back to form easily.
