Your Pursuit is a standard extruded barrel with a nickel finish not a nickel alloy steel barrel. Extruded barrels from Spain are the ones that are in question as to just how strong they are. Personally I have a Pursuit and would not shoot 100gr. of 777 in mine. I limit my Pursuit to 90gr. Pyrodex and would not shoot any more than 80gr. of 777 with 300gr. bullets or lighter. If heavier bullets I would reduce the charge. As I stated this is my personal opinion and you may elect to do otherwise; however, my body parts are too valuable to chance a heavy charge in a Spanish barrel. I save those kind of loads for my T/C Omega.
