Title: 1/2" A307 bolts or lag bolts
If you are looking for design values for these bolts in wood, they are in the NDS(r). The equation for lag screw withdrawal values is: W=1800 * G^(3/2) * D^(3/4) where G is specific gravity of the wood. Units are lbs. per inch of thread penetration in the main member. For a 1/2" lag with G=0.50 (DFL), W=378lbs./inch
The lateral design values are not as easily spelled out, but here's an example:
1/2" bolt with 1-1/2" main, 1-1/2" side, G=0.50 (DFL), both members loaded parallel to grain Z=480lbs.
1/2" lag screw with 1-1/2" side member, G=0.50 (DFL), both members loaded parallel to grain Z=390lbs.

Does anyone know where I can find some design information (shear and
pullout) on these bolts? Thanks in advance.
