>Chris made reference to the coil resistance of the relay. I have an Amphenol relay with a 110VAC coil. I believe it's R is ~550 ohms. It's not to hand just now, but I will check it later. Thanks to Peter for that rule of thumb - I will need to know that >too at some stage!
The spec of my coil is 550 ohms and measures out nearer to 500. In comparison, the 26V DC models are all around 200 ohms. From a DC perspective, that would seem to bear out everyone's experiences then. I still have no idea how they actually work with AC applied :>)
