I ordered this mainly because I didn't have any gunmetal wire and wanted some. I'm really lovin it though. The gauge is great and I love the color. It hammers well, and I love it for earrings. I've made hoops and ear wires out of it with no issue. I'll definitely be buying more.

I use this wire for everything. Makes great wire wrapped rings. I really love the color - not sure it is really the traditional gunmetal, but it works very well with antique copper.

I love this wire!
I needed a good, high gauge wire for my Steampunk and other beading projects. This wire is very malleable yet strong. I've made spiral headpins with it, formed links using the wire and beads/Swarovski crystals, and wrapped cabachons and quartz crystals with it. I would highly recommend the wire and plan to purchase more.

I like the color
I use mostly Patina'ed brass (vintage brass/ bronze) for my jewelry designs. I ordered gunmetal wire, because I would like to do more designs in gunmetal or antique silver. This wire really looks more like the vintage brass color than gunmetal. I suppose the gunmetal finish on the copper wire produced more of a bronze color. It's very attractive, and I think in a gunmetal colored design, the warmth of the wire might not be noticeable in the wire wraps.

As usual, the artistic wire works up great into charms, jump rings, connections, whatever; the 20 gauge works for so many applications. And, yes, the color is great for gunmetal, but works also for Auntie's antique brass findings.
