I ran across a video that makes my point, ironically a video where the guy was trying to show how effective his AR was. Needless to say I was not impressed, he is sitting in the tree stand shooting at deer he has already wounded as they are running away. You know how many times I have had to do that with a 30-06, 6.5x55 or 270 ZERO ZILCH NONE NEVER I have such confidence in they putting the deer down in a hurry I don't bother racking the bolt to chamber the next round, I have never needed it.
It would be one thing if he were shooting 250lbs class bucks but watching those dog sized deer run off was not exactly confidence inspiring. In his defense at leased he did harvest some deer and did not loose them to the yotes.
