    My father started out with trigger strings in the 1940's.

    If it were not for all my father's gun designs, I might not be able to afford so many guns to overload.

    But there are rewards for destructive testing. One can get closer to the truth.
    But most people should not handle snakes, climb Mt Everest, or overload guns.
    Most people should just follow the instructions in their load manuals.



    Why would you want to over load so many guns?

    To see what happens, much like the first chapter in Ackley's 1966 book, "The strength of military actions..Actual tests".
