I wouldn't use those bifurcated edge connector pins just because there's less surface area that can make contact.

On edge connectors, yes 08-50-0108 can be used, but keep in mind that those are for smaller diameter (22-26 AWG) wire. Most wire used in pins is a larger diameter (18-22 AWG). It would be better to use 08-50-0106-C instead.

Then for header pins, it's usually best to use Trifurcon pins 08-52-0113, so 3 sides of the connector pin are touching the header pin, rather than just one side.
