Right, I understand. I was responding to your comment that because the modulus of elasticity was the same, all the various 99 action vintages regardless of alloy, heat treat or yield strength would stretch the brass the same.

Your statement is true right up until the load exceeds the yield strength of action. Then there will be a considerable difference in how much the brass is stretched compared to other 99 actions with higher yield strengths.
