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.

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.
