I worked for G.E. Burlington for 17 years, making parts for Gatling guns: Minigun, 20mm Vulcan and 30mm GAU-8 that is used in the A-10 Warthog. I've also worked in a small machine shop that contracted to sporterize thousands of WWII rifles and worked with semi-automatic weapons such as M1A and SKS semi-automatic rifles. As a machinist, former hunter and former Marine who has fired the M-1, M-14 and M-16, I can honestly say there is NO discernable difference between the killing power of any standard semi-automatic hunting rifle and any semi-automatic rifle that "resembles" a fully-automatic assault rifle and fires the same caliber round.
