The beauty of full-hard wire is that it retains the bends you make; this is also what makes it less than ideal when forming consistently sized rings on a jumpring mandrel. And when using the rings in a chainmaille design, even the slightest difference in diameter could make the rings incompatible with the weave or pattern, so using dead-soft or half-hard are your best bets for this task.
