    Rationale

    There are circumstances that 4340 is used to create heavy hex nuts to improve charpy impact testing. This additional nickel content improves the quality of the product, but since it is not captured in A194, deviations to L43 are sometimes not permitted. The suggestion would be to allow the substitution of G7 nuts for L43 material nuts. In addition, develop a marking on the nut. Proposed marking to be L43.
