     This would be for use in performing activation calculations. I have 
     found several references showing the main constituents but finding the 
     cobalt content is another story.
     Thanks in advance.

     A great reference that I've used for activation analysis is the ASM 
     Metal Handbooks.  I believe it's a 17 volume set (??) with many common 
     and uncommon alloys, etc.  In fact, I think it contains approximately 
     50 different grades of stainless steel.
     You should be able to get it directly from ASM, or I would suspect a 
     local University Science/Engineering library would have a set.
