Jerry told me it was deeper in really bad ground.

Well they use 6 nine volts as apposed to 4 nine bolt batteries. They only use a 10'' coil and they are made for highly mineralized ground like in Virginia. There not as good in iron as the IIB,IIBa detectors.

Any statistics on depth for conductive items?

I guess the DMC-4 needed more batteries because the much lower freq. made it harder to fill the coil's "Q,"
requiring more batt. reserve.

Vlad, what you would expect, deep on bullets, cannonballs

I think they had a harder time with deep iron but they didn't have the coil issues of 2b either.

Not as good on brass but a good machine, never used one in bad ground but logic says it would work better.

I had one years ago, I think George Kinzee had one also,

I owned one many years ago. It does have 6 batteries which always got many looks....It was made from the DMC2 set up and did have a different coil configuration. Depth was the same as a DMC2. They are hard to find now as guys hold on to them for their uniqueness.
