I appreciate your reply (and avatar), but I think that you maybe mistaken since:
Aluminum AlMgSi1 (EN 6082)
The tensile strength is 330 N/mm2
Stainless steel aisi 316 (1.4401)
The tensile strength is 600 N/mm2
Where N/mm2 is Newton per square mm
It has also been my experience that I have had better luck with stainless steel screws than aluminum.
