haha! what is brass?
its a mixture of copper and tin, tin does rust if it is exposed to dampness and oxygen.

Never used Hornady but I bet WW or RP makes it for them and stamps it Hornady.

RP is thicker and softer so pressures run very slightly higher than WW with the same powder charge.

WW is thin and hard and tends to crack in the necks with fewer loadings than RP does. On the up side WW is way better for necking 308 down to 7mm/08 and other such neck alterations because the necks don't thicken up and need turning so much.

Overall I like RP best. I get more loadings from RP cases than any other brand except Federal match cases.

Out of those choices my favorite is also Winchester, but Lapua is also great if you are willing to pay the price. I've been buying it lately.

Hornady actually produces their own brass and for the money is probably the best deal out there if you need such higher quality/tighter tolerances...which most do not. I tend to prefer WW brass for my reloading, but have a ton of R-P (remington) and Federal brass around as well and have never had any quality issues with any of it if prepped properly.
