I spent six years in the army as a ground troop so for those that might disagree; tread carefully in what you may say. I'm not saying you cann't have them; but you truly could be come a better marksman with a bolt action.
Last season I was on public land when a group of guys with a ton of fire power unleashed a broll of fire on a buck.I think they cut down more trees in the end. Later that day back at the parking area they had the buck. There was 14 holes in that deer....GIVE ME A BRACK! This is not the first time I have seen over gunning. All my deer have been taken with one shot one kill.
So agree or disagree with over gunning in the feild? I look at it like this my son and wife go to the feild last thing I want is for them to have to be duckn for cover; cause Jo Bob didn't taken the time to be a better marksman.
Let me ask you this one. I have a semi auto Benelli shotgun set up with a plug so it holds three rounds only and it's got a slug barrel on it. Does this come into your problem as well as a semi auto loading rifle?
