Steel has lightly less drag (or the other way around). It only helps primarily in underboring or using reballs. But it does NOTHING for accuracy.

stainless steel is also effected less by temperature, meaning it doesn't shrink as much in cold weather or expand as much in warmer weather. but the difference is negligible

If you own a super light gun (not an SLG) Stainless Steel to help against barrel rise otherwise aluminum.
