10-52's for Drop C, possibly Drop B. I have 12's strung for Drop B and C standard tunings.

Thats what i've found to work best in the past.

10-52s are good for Drop C, but you will need something heavier if you're going any lower IMO. I use 10-52s and they are extremely floppy in B.

I believe all strings are made of metal (excluding the nylon ones that are used on classical guitars).

As for gauge and brand - it is all preference. In my opinion there really is no difference between brands but as far as gauge you will just have to experiment and find something you like.
