I live in AZ so if something bad ever did happen and we had to protect what is ours and also have to hunt to live (we have large mule deer and big elk) I think Id rather go with something a little more beefy. Over penetration on a man may be a concern but I dont think anyone would survive a hit anywhere in the torso with a scirocco, accubond, interlock, etc coming from any rifle caliber...308 would be my choice though
Ive killed a few elk with winchesters factory ballistic silvertip ammo 150 grains. I have killed a couple over 550yds out of my 300wsm with that ammo complete pass through no issues. So I wouldnt say they wont work;)
