They're almost the same! Well, not quite... brass is a copper/zinc alloy created to increase the tensile strength of copper. But the biggest difference is what they're used for.
Copper is available primarily as parts for plumbing and is sold in a couple of standard sizes with relatively large wall thickness.
Brass is sold as a construction material for the hobbyist (not hobbit, that's different) and is used to build working scale steam engines, cannons, and more mundane things probably. It's commonly available with 1/64" wall thickness in 1/32" increments.
Copper is usually cheaper and easier to find but is a hit-or-miss proposition as it doesn't fit most FBR. If you happen to have FBR that fits copper well, there's no reason not to use it. If your FBR does not fit copper, brass is your friend. Brass fits everything and can be nested to provide a graduated degree of tightness around your darts.

Way back in the day (aka a month or so ago), when our school Nerf wars were still going on, people would resort to all kinds of trickery to shoot people. One method was to dress up as a pizza man, delivery man, mail man, etc. Anyway, unknown to me at the time, my mom had ordered pizza for our family. I was in my room on my computer and I see a car with a Domino's sign on top of it... or that's atleast what they wanted me to think! I was on to them from the minute they pulled up. Now the guy was pretty good, he had a real pizza, a real uniform, and a real delivery route even, but that wasn't enough to fool me! As he was walking up our sidewalk, I grabbed my Crossbow and nailed that bitch right in the chest, and let out a victory "I GOT YOU BIAAAAAAAAATCH!" But this guy was too good for that, he played along still and even delivered the pizza, which we paid for! Sheesh... talk about dedication.
Since then, Domino's has refused to deliver to our house for some odd reason...
