It doesn't seem like too many engineers (especially us old geezers) are too
"warm and fuzzy" about LRFD in steel, although I just read a study in Modern
Steel Construction whereby one could save about 15-20% in tonnage when using
Gr. 50 steel and LRFD vs. Gr. 36 steel and ASD.

When you start cutting steel this much, don't you usually wind up with a 
trampoline instead of a floor?
