Hornady Superformance 165gr SSTs didn't pass through a 200lb GA white tail at 25yds. No sure what theyd do to Joe Bad Guy at 2-3yds. My M1A is by far my favorite gun, it'll definitely be the one I go for should the world go to [bad place] in a handbasket, but for bumps in the night I have a shotgun.
