    Does anyone remember a series of destructive tests done on factory rifles? I thought it was H. P. White Laboratories, but they couldn't find them. Whoever it was tested several factory actions/rifles to failure. I've posted on Wby Rifles Forum also. I read these tests about 8 - 10 years ago. They may have been published in a magazine, I just don't remember.

    I Hope someone's memory is better than mine.

    Thanks, Tom
