And as for weight, you state 15 pounds for the heavier headers, but how much lighter are you talking about? 2 pounds? 5 pounds? No one on this list would be able to tell the difference.

Be careful using this to decide your pricing. I want the best stuff at the cheapest material's price. But why not offer both (or multiple) materials and we get to choose based on our own criteria? How long would it take to build an order? A couple weeks? I could live with that knowing they are built to my specs.

+1. Offer the option for 321, keep a few 304's in stock ready to ship. If a customer prefers 321, just note a lead time of a couple weeks prior to sale for fab time.

This is what I do for my stuff and it works well. I keep nothing prefabbed in 625, but retain the option and build per request.
