What would I do?

I am not doing much but sitting around the house and have started to wonder how much the wonder mags can take.

I think I am going to do my own little torture test and keep going until one breaks.

What would be some good "tests" to run them through. It need not be scientific or practical but it should be a least a little entertaining.

So far I am thinking

crush test
frozen crush test
shooting them with a bow using a soft rubber tip (side impact)
drop tests etc.

Run them over with a bus.... that does actually break them after a few attempts.

I would avoid killing magazines.... considering you could sell it for twice normal value instead.

I'd do real world testing, like dropping them out of your hands when you're doing a mag change in 0 deg. weather onto concrete.  You could even throw them about 20 yards to simulate getting them to your bouding buddy who ran dry.

If you want the real deal proof go to youtube and do a search from chevy vs pmag   they actually start off with like 10 diff mags and the proof is in the puttin. hell they put a bullet through one it cut the spring in 2, they took it apart stretched the longer part of the spring put it back in the mag loaded it and it still functioned flawless.

Fire might be a good test.

I got 10 bucks says if they took that mag apart and stretched the longer portion of the spring out and put it back together it would function with the full 30 rounds.
