I prefer stainless and from what I've read it seems as if .685 is the way to go now.

my go to is 0.684. occasionally I have found use for 0.681.
best bet is to ask the people who are shooting the same paint as you what size inserts they are using and then take into consideration that if they are using a semi-auto, you can go probably go smaller.
I'm not sure that sp vs empire makes a difference, but I would go for the stainless over the aluminum--if nothing else they are more durable.

In the world I see - you are stalking elk through the damp canyon forests around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty car pool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

I shot the .681 bigshot at the classic with Nelson anarchy. Didn't have a single break all day. Granted freak inserts are not as beautifully honed, but I was plinking around my backyard with .682 in my micro two days before using old dimpled junk from osg in November. No breaks there either. .679 on the other hand...blender
