For PLA, brass is probably better. It has MUCH higher thermal conductivity than stainless. I think stainless is preferred for more abrasive materials like wood or carbon fiber filled stuff.

Brass, transfers heat much much better. I bought a stainless nozzle when I bought my M2 2 years ago, I print PETG, ABS, PLA and sometimes Nylon and have never used the stainless nozzle.. that is for stuff like carbon fiber infused composite filaments that are abrasive.
