Working on a bolt compliant to MIL-S-1222, which requires wedge testing, which is more of a test of ductility than a confirmation of strength. We have a supplier that can make the bolt by either method, and the material (4340) coming in from the mill is produced with a reduction ratio of 15:1. Will anything be be gained by forging the head of these bolts vs. just machining from the bar?
