not with ball ammo in each. Match M1A is $1500, rangefinder scope, at LEAST $500 more (used) MATCH HBAR upper costs a LOT less than Match M1A. Under realistic field conditions, you have no HOPE of outreaching even a standard AR, using match ammo, trigger job and scope, with Match M1A, match 308 ammo, and iron sights. The match HBAR groups 3" at 300 yds, still has 1050 ft lbs left out there, when using the 90 gr VLD, too. So just BRAIN the deer, that's all. As flat as that load shoots, from a 24" barrel, you can ZERO the scope at 300 yds, and not worry about shooting too high, at 200 yds.
