The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

if you embrace inaccurate intonation it can be quite arousing.

HAHA i honestly don`t know.

ii play with 81/85`s too and use Dunlop 9`s used to us ernie ball hybrids

i`ve heard... (youtube vid) that blue steel are horrible for EMG`s... so im thinking any steel string is bad for EMG`s but i could be wrong
Steel is generally brighter than nickel and has more bite to it.

And i doubt the difference in material would affect actives much at all.
