    That might not be enough developer for an 8x10... You've got it diluted to 1:1:200 which is half dilution and only using 300-500ml might not be enough. Be generous with the developer quantity.
    (I've seen bromide drag with pmk but not with pyrocat hd.)

    I think you need at least 3Ml A in 500ml water to do any type of minimum agitation for a sheet of 4x5. For an 8x10 I would use minimum 4A:3B:500W, 3minutes initial agitation for the large open areas you have, and then 20second agitations at the 1/4 points. If you want to stay at 1:200 replace developer at the midpoint with fresh developer but little additional agitation. I also have read that tubes are better for stand rather than trays because of vertical vs horizontal orientation.

    So I decided to adjust my development time and add more to my agitation frequency.

    Negative looks much better but with some fogging on the edges

    Any very dilute developer, bromide streaks can ge a problem. I've run into the same problem with XTOL developing in a drum. Increasing the developer concentration worked for me.
    FWIW, Best Regards Mike
