It says:
"Never use hydrocarbons, trichlorethylene, ammonia nor teflon-based lubricants: they could cause damage to your pistol!"

There are no reccommended cleaners or lubricants....

It also says:
"The pistol should be checked every 2000 rounds and/or once a year because damage , wear, corrosion ... are not always visible from the outside.
For that purpose, send the pistol to your dealer."

I fired the full range loads with the AA7, sent the data to Johan, and this is the response I received:

Thanks for the feedback and co-operation.
You're latest data shows that AA 7 is closer to the factory powder than AA5.
The 6.9grains load is about were you should settle for good all round performance.
You can experiment with AA5 if you want, but I would be reluctant.
Since this is such a sensitive caliber the faster powder will even be less forgiving.
You will have to extremely careful, because things will happen much faster.
I suggest between 5.0 and 6.2grains of AA 5.


The load information:

Hornady V-Max 35 grain
6.9 grains AA7
CCI 400 Primer (small rifle)
COL: 1.46 inches
Case trimmed to 1.127
1884 FPS
