Default Any LA ranges (ideally near Burbank or N. Hollywood) that allow steel case ammo?

I see that firing line in Burbank bans it. **** them, what business is it of theirs?

Anyway, are there ranges that aren't *******s about saying you HAVE to use more expensive brass ammo?

You are out of luck. It isn't just about the steel casing, it also had to do with bimetal jacket on projectile. This is why I don't buy russian ammo. Their facility, their rules.

The issue is not the steel casing but steel in the actual bullet. The outdoor ranges don't care if the casing is magnetic but care if the bullet itself is magnetic.

What caliber steel case ammo are you trying to shoot?

None.
Ditto to casings and projectiles. If you run a magnet across the top of the bullet and it catches, then you have a steel core bullet. Think of it as a micro-tank round. It will destroy stuff more and faster than a pure lead round would. That's why indoor ranges don't allow it. When it hits metal and disintegrates, those tiny little shards are hot enough to burn brush and start a fire. That's why outdoor ranges don't allow it. Sometimes you have to bite the bullet and suffer buyer's remorse when the joy of a bargain is no more.

That is partially wrong.
Many bullets have bi-metal jackets over a lead core, which will attract a magnet. The great majority of such ammunition is also loaded into steel cases.
The proper way to find out is to safely pull one of the bullets, then section it carefully using a saw. If it has a true steel core, it will be obvious. You could also take a pulled bullet, and heat it with a propane torch, observing the lead run out of the jacket. A steel core will also fall out; be careful not to get burned.
Some ranges don't allow the use of steel jacketed or steel core ammunition due to potential fire issues; disallowing the use of ammunition simply because it has a steel case, without knowledge of the actual bullet material is simply ignorance, or a blanket policy that requires no intelligence to follow.

Agreed. I should've added steel jacket. From my experience, ranges allow people to shoot bullets with steel cases. It's the steel jacket and steel core projectile they turn away.
