Nice to see recent interest in this thread.
I still haven't fired the 14a yet, but its nobody's fault but mine. The gunsmith gave it a clean bill of health and I picked up a box of 20 new .30 Remington 150gr at the Dixie Classic for under $30. Of course, I'll be saving the brass! I have a few more days to get it sighted in for deer season, but I still plan on giving it some time in the filed this year.
