solenoid material

I work in a hydraulic machine and parts manufactuer, and we are developing solenoid.

I bought some Silicon iron B-FM, and it works fine.  However, the availiability is not good.  Then I found out some other materials that could be used to replace B-FM (thanks for the posts!), so I bought 12L14 and 430FR.  However, our engineer wants to test more materials before making any decision.  Could anyone tell me if Chrome Core 8-FM or 13-FM is a good choice?  Also, where can I get these materials?

Thanks a lot for the help.
