Friend of mine just got his going, very nice system. We used the 142 Sierra MK and H4831 I believe. Very impressive cartridge at long range but dosen't seem to have the knock down on deer so far (I think he's doing something wrong, after all it's Groceryman).

I'm sure you'll love it, mine should be here next month, it's coming in from Tac-Ord with a PacNor barrel.
