I see Edson
uses 305 stainless for cable sets. Reading about 305 it has a bit worse pitting corrosion
than 304 but less tendency to work harden. 316 seems to have the most work hardening but clearly is the better choice for corrosion
resistance. If I go stainless steel
then what is best for steering cables? I know 7x19 is the only choice for architecture but alloy choice is not clear? How many ch of a factor is work hardening for steering cables? Will hit harden going around the sheaves?
