A-333 Gr 6 is carbon steel pressure pipe with UTS = 60 ksi and YS = 35 
ksi. It's not normally used for structural applications, but there's no 
reason not to, except that it's more expensive (because it's tougher) 
than the usual structural grade which is ASTM A-53. Note that A-33 Gr 6 
may be either seamless or welded, if that makes any difference.
