From your experiences, I'd like to know where I need improvement or if I should stll be trying to get just a base line level of strength first. Appreciate the input.

5'6", ~170lbs
Best Squat: 405lbs
Best Deadlift: 425lbs
Best Bench (not exactly sure on this one since I havent benched in a while): 275 lbs

Best Clean and Jerk: 225lbs
Best Snatch(mostly been working on technique to get comfortable with it): 155lbs.
What Dave said. Your PL numbers are freaking solid. Oly numbers aren't too shabby either, especially that C&J. I suck at oly lifts myself and am thus thoroughly impressed by your efforts.

Depending on exactly what weight class you competed in I'd wager a guess that you could medal.
And if you don't think kettleball squat cleans are difficult, I say, step up to the med-ball
