Brass is an alloy. Not all brass is the same alloy. If the alloy uses different mixes of components, it can be heavier(or lighter) per unit of volume(of the brass not the the case volume).
There is another cute little saying reloaders use: "Military cases are heavier because the cases are thicker". I also have a saying: "If that is true it is only half true".

And then? There are all the RCBS primer swage parts and pieces that are bent.

If only reloaders had micrometers and scales.
