Not to quibble, but the Disco's screws are actually #8-32.

Response to If you had one of these, it would be easy to win the bet stop

 

Their ultimate tensile (shear is of course less) strength is probably about 800# each for a total for the three of ~2400#, meaning the valve might be expected to let go and become a projectile at about 5500 to 6000psi.

That gives a safety factor of ~2.8 for the Disco's rated 2000psi MWP fill. Just about right, IMHO.
