    A big ditto on that, and I love Brux barrels also.

    Ran some pressure testing this morning. Did not mount a scope, so no groups.
    64.5 gr Retumbo with 168gr Bergers jammed 0.005 yielded
    2756 fps with no pressure signs. 65 gr started to get a slight stiffness in bolt lift.
    Only needed to shoot 3 rounds to find my max pressure load.

    In review, going with 64.5 gr Retumbo w/ 168gr Berger will get you 2750fps.
    Solid elk killing rig to 700 yards with 1500# of energy.

    Shot 6 more rounds this afternoon.
    64gr Retumbo had a extreme spread of 7 fps.
    Doesn't get much better than that.

    5 shot group shot yesterday w/ 168gr Berger's and 64gr of Retumbo.
    Round count now at 12
    Barrel has shown absolutely no copper fouling during barrel break in.
    If someone is looking for a hunting pistol you won't find a better deal than this.

    Wow, 12 rounds and it's shooting great, load development is all but done!

    I can't berlieve someone hasen't jumped on this firearm.

    Jim, If you don't have that pistol sold by Tuesday give me a call, I'll take it off your hands for $1600 and keep it in the shop for a few months as a display. If you find the means to buy it back at the same price, great. If not I will sell it in the store or keep it for myself.

    Pretty is as pretty does and that thing is beautiful.
