Hello San Souci, Thank you, again and again<br>
My 'puter's broke so, I'm wingin' it here<br>
Let me think....<br><br>
M............8 GA....................8 with 50min XT<br>
T............22 LR..................22<br>
W...........rest......................2.91 recovery<br>
T............12 MLR................12.12<br>

a good vintage too.<br><br>
