Out of those two, Brass is by far a better conductor of electricity.

There's an equal list like that concerned on price as well. That's why they use lead not copper

Most likely the main reason for not using a more expensive metal is that the post on a battery is not intended as a current conductor, it is simply a fastening device used to promote the contact between the cable lug and the lead post surface.

Exactly, The battery steel stud & nut is a clamp mechanism which insures proper tension between the copper or aluminum cable lug and the lead post base
