Do you still have samples (off-cuts?) of the wires in question? You could have a chemical analysis done to determine whether or not both, one, or neither are really 316 SS. Scrap yards or metal recyclers might have a hand-held or bench-top XRF (x-ray fluorescence spectrometer) that might be able to tell you which alloy(s) your wire is.
