Re: allen bolts

Dan,
 
If this is a steel-to-steel connection and you are using bolts with countersunk heads, this is not a conventional bolted joint.  I don't know the source, but there must be test data on the strength of the countersunk connection.  I can imagine that pull-through of the head may limit the capacity of this kind of connection.
