Depending on the quality of the sandpaper and steel wool being compared, 0000 is equivalent to 600-800 grit sandpaper (some say even as high as 2000 grit).

They don’t “cut” in the same fashion though and the results will vary because of this. I’d say if you must keep using sandpaper, to at least step up to 600 grit.

And yes, sometimes it does take a lot of coats to get an even looking finish.
