Fred and All.
The study on the blown Muenier 03 was featured in a two part article in GUNMAKER magazine. Gunmaker is the very well done magazine of The American Custom Gunmakers Guild. I would encourage anyone here to to join as an associate member,or professional. Their magazine has good articles and you can correspond with professional members from their website. The study was given to them to publish and I don’t know if they have copyright or their policies to post it here.
When I bought the remains of the rifle I sent them to a metallurgist who went above and beyond when he put a team of three other metallurgist together who where each award winning professionals in their field of metallurgy. The reason I picked this rifle for study was the fact we know what loads Michael put through it and the the owner of the rifle tells us in detail of his loading at time of failure. I could go into more detail but hopefully we can get the study here and you can read it.
The article came out in 2018, I reread it today. There were so many things I missed when I first read it. I really am impressed by the science that went into it.
I consider it a "must read" for anyone interested in the low number Springfield issue. It should be discussed every time someone raises the issue of low-numbered
