Burstbuckers Vs. Probuckers

I recently bought an Epiphone LP Modern with Probuckers. I play mainly de-tuned hi-gain heavy rock (C# standard). Tone wise I think they sound great...nice and fat and pretty well balanced however they squeal like a pig at high volumes and gain. Because I like their tone so much I am considering swapping them out for Burstbuckers but have no experience with them (I have Duncans in both of my Gibson LP's). I figured they are probably similar tonally but am worried about feedback.

Anyone have experience with BB's with hi-gain settings?
