Return to shooty Orks?

My league this month is lower points, only 1650. I wanted to try and see if shooty Orks can be a thing under the new book and 7th. Since the new book came out I've been moving more and more to close combat and speed builds with less overall shooting. 

I built a list of nothing but shooting units..and of course the lucky stick. Never leave home without it.

Ork Horde Detachment
HQ: Warboss: pk, bp, lucky stuck, 'eavy armor
HQ: Painboy
HQ: Painboy
HQ: Mek

Troop: 30 'ard shootaboyz, 3 rokkets, nob w/PK&BP
Troop: 30 'ard shootaboyz, 3 rokkets, nob w/PK&BP
Troop: 10 grots

Elite: 10 tankbustas

Heavy: 15 lootas
Heavy: 3 KMK, runts
Heavy: 5 Lobba, runts

I would have gone with 30 lootas, but decided on more mek guns instead.  The tankbustas make up for the lack of a 2nd unit of lootas.

Overall this is a lot of fun. The combination of the vast amount of shooting with the still formidable CC capabilities of the standard Ork boy makes this flexible and effective..but slow.  Depending on the type of shooting, there may not be enough bodies to get across the table..
