Does anyone have experience with developing Bergger film in XTOL? TIA.

These are the only numbers I have for XTOL, as most use BPF with PMK.
BPF200 8x10 film, rated at ASA100 Xtol 1:1 68 degrees for 12 minutes 2 invertions per minute B+F=.16 Highlight 1.43 DR 1.27 Studio shot with strobes.

FYI: I just got back a set of 4x5 negatives from The Photo Factory, who processed them in Xtol (I'd intended to dope them in PMK but couldn't). I'm pleased to say that they were excellent. Bergger has often been compared with Super-XX, but I've always been unhappy with the grain clearly showing in the sky with SXX. As far as I can tell, the Bergger is grainless in the sky. This appears to be a good combination of film/developer.
