Default Voltage Drop at the headlights with stock wiring?

Anyone ever measured the voltage drop at the headlight with the stock wiring?

I'm looking to upgrade the headlights and thinking there could be major improvement by just replacing the wiring to the headlights with heavier gauge wiring and better grounding to reduce the light being lost.

Wondering if anyone has measured voltage drop at the headlights? .5 volt extra at the headlight is a major increase if light.

I was going to do it this weekend but it seems my headlights aren't that easy to reach.
