Most of the Knights I've sighted in prefer either 80-85 grains of powder...

I'd say your gun is shooting a little to the left, not that the deer should notice.

I'd like to see a picture of one of those sitka deer, if that's what you're after. And, like I said, the deer won't know the difference. Put it on him and let it rip.
