Suitability of M-14 for hunting?
Hi all! I am on the verge of buying a new hunting rifle and started mulling over the possibility of picking up a M-14 for this purpose. I live in Missouri and hunting situations down here are typically shots under 100 yards, through the woods, and 200 pound deer.My question is twofold.1) How suitable is the M-14 for this type of hunting situation? Are there restrictions as to the type of weapon that can be used?2) What are the absolute limits of the .308 (7.62 NATO) cartridge that will kill a deer humanely. (ie range, downrange energy, trajectory, etc.)Any hints or information would be greatly appreciated! :-)Brian
