Excess pressure tests of various actions have been run time and again. What might be interesting is to study the way obstructions cause barrels to bulge or burst and the effect of kinetic energy changing to a massive heat dump that softens the barrel steel.

On those SNS tests, IIRC, the gun ban gang was frustrated when a couple of RG 10's took everything the testers threw at them while a "quality, American-made" pistol, the S&W Escort, came apart.
