Hello all, I was wondering if any of the guys that have taken an RGG to a successful conclusion or close to it has ever measured how much torque it takes to crank the handle with the firing pins engaged? I know that the least amount is optimum but I would like get an idea of how heavy it can get and still not have to worry about breakage. Thanks!

I believe  member Steve McKuhen posted some of
his experiments with cranking torque a few years ago.
Haven’t heard from him in a long time .
Maybe his posts are still available
