I've never fired mine with full power loads. Shoots nice with Trailboss and Lee 205gr .329 cast, though. "well worn" would be a good description of mine, as Drydock can attest. Had a few wrong/missing small parts when I got it, but now pretty complete. I think Bubba "cleaned it up" with a wire wheel at some point.

Mine is a St. Etiemme and came with the Bayonet...
Stock had been through armory repaired with some wood repair inlays.
Metal shows no wire wheel abuse.
 I found 4 Enbloc Clips on eBay buy now for $12  ( $4 ea. ) I jumped on, now they are $25 each  ::)
