I hope once broke in it shoots as cool as it looks. It is not something I would own cause my grandfather told me one thing that stayed with me all my life. Back when I was a teenager and I wanted some chrome wheels for my 55 Chevy and I told him I might buy some and he said "son, chrome don't get ya home"! Never did put them chrome wheels on the double nickel and she ran just fine without them..............:clap:

I was able to get to the range the last two days and put 600 rounds through it for the initial break-in, but still could use another 500 rounds to get it ready for competition.  After this first break-in period I broke the gun down, cleaned it, and changed the recoil spring to a Wolff 7lb.  I am going to use the same reloading data on this gun as I used on my other Open gun.  My current load for this gun is:

115gr JHP Montana Gold

7.8gr Winchester Autocomp

C.O.L. 1.165-70

174000 - Power Factor

I may work up another load using Hodgdon HS-6 with the 115gr bullet to generate more gas to work the comp.
