It doesn't make any difference what working space you use when printing so long as the image is within the gamut of the working space. OTOH, there is no reason to use a different Gamma working space. Changing Gamma only changes the RGB values, not the actual color.

I have some question regarding your last line.  My limited experience (that I posted a thread a few weeks ago) regarding changes in RGB values and the colors on the screen (for selected colors) definitely displayed different colors when changing from aRGB to sRGB.

However, you mentioned GAMMA and my discussion was regarding the mentioned change from aRGB to sRGB.
