Arc-tec 265s, I normally stick weld it but have used tig as well. Stick welding looks ugly for the first couple of passes but smooths out as you continue welding. Tough stuff and wears well, yet turns on a lathe well enough to machine back to spec.
PS: Hang onto your wallet this stuff isn't cheap.

I've only ever used the 309. Concerning wear, I dunno that there is a difference?
