I remember reading about Ackley's experiments, where he didn't even need to have the bolt locked on a rifle with full power loads, using near cylindrical bottle neck cases (minimal taper)
I can't access the link, I'll have to read it at home.
ETA: was able to read it on my phone
some questions stuck in my head... they never did find the yield strength of the brass.
Also, this proves that in a properly HS'd Handi, running 30-30AI pressures up to the same as 308Win is not a concern at all.
this puts to rest comments here and elsewhere that 30-30 brass is thin and weak, and makes moot the suggestion to use 375Win brass for higher pressure loads
Now, time to turn my 30-30AI into a 300WinMag!
