Default Weight? Tungsten vs. Brass

I have working on tying up some small midges. As I am really new at this and some of my flies don't look exactly the way I planned I have been using mostly brass beads as they are simply cheaper than tungsten. So, here is my question just exactly how much heavier are the tunsten beads?
I have asked several folks and looked at several catalogs and seen anything from 50% heavier to more than 2X heavier. What say you? Does anyone really know? Or is there at least a general guideline?
Thanks for any help. Mike
