  ... That which is referred to as "brass" is the CARTRIDGE (not
the bullet  case. The cartridge case is brass, the bullet JACKET is
a copper alloy. Correct terminology goes a long way toward
eliminating misunderstanding methinks, eh? 

Yes, but the terminological problem here is that brass itself is a
copper alloy…

brass because it’s made of brass, except that some brass is
aluminum or even steel. :wink:
