Should you always use half hard wire to chainmail? I have always purchased my rings at a store and now I want to make my own rings.

well it depends what you making armour for, combat use or non combat..

You got to look upon the many different factors,, price, strength , and care needed..

Id say just use galvanised wire....... but if your only gonna use it for show and not combat and you want it to be light then use aluminuim..
Stainless steel is good if you can afford..
This site will give you more answers about differnt metals..
