Sounds to me like you have a groundhog rig!!

Using 200 and 200 MKs on groundhogs shouldn't be a problem, might be a little too much gun for those 'twinkie' sized versions in early Spring though. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

It sounds as though you'll have enough gun for PD's but I'm not sure about groundhogs. Hogs put on a lot of extra body weight in late summer and are much harder to anchor then PDs.
You should really consider a rig with more bullet weight. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
