Kodak Tri X 400 Shot and Developed at 1250 ISO

Until this roll, I haven't been that pleased with Kodak Tri X 400. I used it several times at 400 and have developed it in both Ilford DD-X and Rodinal, but until I read up on people pushing it to 1600 with good results I hadn't thought of pushing it. First of all it already seemed plenty grainy. I liked that. But it was also flat and not very contrasty. So yesterday I loaded a roll into the Leica M6 and set the ISO at 1250 (well 1200 on the Leica, which has a dodgy ISO setting if you ask me). I also developed it in Kodak stalwart D-76 instead of Rodinal. These are the results. Very contrasty. Normally I would adjust the contrast up a bit with Tri-X, but didn't need to touch it. Just scanned them in.
