I've got a Z5. You are going to be upset at the price you paid because Walmart tends to mark them down for clearance after hunting season. I paid $200 for mine and then a month later could have bought another one for only $180.

For loads, mine loves the Hornady 250grn SST with the low-drag sabot pushed by 100 grn of loose 777 and a 777 primer. Trigger45's 300grn Hornady XTP is a fine bullet, but you'll get less drop out of the SST (much better ballistic coefficient). With a .50 caliber hole, I'll take flatter shooting over terminal performance.
