Best Carbon steel / alloy steel for cold forming

Best Carbon steel / alloy steel for cold forming

(OP)
Hello team,

Looking for the most formable in room temperature carbon/ alloy steel pipe.
High formability high elongation.

Also do you know what's the current welding practice of carbon/ alloy steels in the field today?

Thx

As low a carbon steel as you can find.  Adding nickel content helps with elongation.  Oh, and get it in annealed condition.

12L14 is definitely NOT formable.Neither does it come in pipe.
