Anyone offer up any suggestions for alternative material to replace .25" thick 1045 part made in a 3 stage forming die that would give me similar strength and elongation properties?

do you want to heat treat this material?

I would prefer to not have to heat treat. That adds a variable and a cost into the part I would like to avoid.

If you don't like an alloyed steel (much expensive), use 1030 or 1022. Also, 1117 or 1137 normalized are good.

I tend to use 1018 CF. It welds well, machines well, is easy to work with and is easy to get. In fact I tend to use it more that 1045. It is not quite as strong but a fairly good match in my opinion. This comes from my strong machine shop background.

The worst suggestion of your lifetime may be the catalyst to the grandest idea of the century, never let suggestions go unsaid nor fail to listen to them.
