The experimental technique of high energy y-ray inelastic scattering has been investigated in great detail with respect to the influence of experimental factors on the Compton profiles of the transition metals Vanadium and Iron. New experimental procedures and analysis methods have yielded highly accurate data which throw doubt on the applicability of Local Density Approximations in the calculation of electron correlation effects in these materials. The concept of electron momentum density is developed as an observable which is particularly sensitive to such valence electron properties.
