Thank ypu Rob and Jeff. Think I'll pass on the MR-X unless I could hold it and see it. Ordering online seems like it will be a crap shoot. I have two regular MR's with the 25 in barrel and they are great. I'll probably grab one of Traditions 45 Strikefires and go with them for now. At least with them I am reasonably confident I will get what I expect and see how they shoot with the old 300gr platinum powerbelt, blue base. Won't be until spring before I can get out and shoot though.
