The steel guide bushings, if and when they come loose during a cut,
with wreck your router bit. The brass is softer and the bit may not
be ruined.

I have both brass and steel ones in various sizes and have never had
an incident. The steel ones will be longer-wearing but you’d really
have to use a brass one a lot to wear it down.
