Bump for accuracy input. MOA? Varmints?

Thanks

Dave, sorry I haven't visited this part for a while. You can expect the same level of accuracy from a standard M1A as you'd get from a Service-grade Garand, 4" or less at 100 yards with Surplus Ammo. Of course that can shrink alot with handloaded fodder. Normally, my shooter Garands will bench 2" or so at 100 for eight shots. I would expect the same from a Regular M1A. Like the 06, the 308/7.62Nato round will work with a wide variety of bullet-weights. I've hunted Groundhogs(Woodchucks) with my Match-rifle and 110grain JHPs with alot of success out to almost 300 yards. After that, they're too tiny to see well in the iron-sights. for Deer-sized game, all you really need to do is take Surplus 7.62, pull the 147 grain bullet and seat any good bullet up to 165 grains, or you can handload for the rifle and substitute bullets. Just stay within the recommended range of powders/charge-weights for the M1A.

Dusting the dirt off on this post because the M14 is just too awesome not to talk about...

My wife not so lovingly calls this one "Money" short for "Money Pit" It's a Fulton receiver, 18.5" Criterion barrel, Everything else on her is either TRW, Smith Enterprise or Sadlak. I have a Vortex Viper PST 2.5-10x32 waiting to go in SEI rings if sage ever releases the scope mount again. I was weaned on the M16A2 and got out before the M14 saw wide spread reintroduction so I didn't have any field experience with them. I was very surprised the first time I shot one and knew I had to have one of my own.

I am a HUGE proponent of the M-14.. In 1961, I was initially trained on the M-1, but issued a brand new M-14 shortly thereafter, once I arrived at the Division..
I was back to civilian life before the Stoner invention became TO&E. The only exposure I have with it is in LE. And that is about all I need.. I detest that platform.. I have a rack grade M-14 that has been set up for CMP..

I went through basic training with the M-14 and have always liked the gun. Never had a longing for the AR platform, so never had one. I did however just pick up a very nice MIA that I intend to have some fun with.
