Thanks for some thoughtful recommendations KRKBAB, GuitarDoc, Mr. B, Gibson175 and MetalMachine!

Metallica Kill Em All tones were a Duncan Distortion. That was my recommendation for you before I knew you wanted those tones even. DD is my favorite Duncan pickup. It was my first and still my all time favorite.
