I dont have any tech info but as a general rule the rounder the cams are the more holding power they have the more egg shaped or elongated they are the more range. You can compare them with others and judge by the shape to get a rough idea. Also thickness of the cam and weather three or four cams has a little to do with it too(surface area contact and stability respectivly)more important in soft rock.
