Have you used the Federal Gold Match 168gr ammo in the M14?If yes,how well did it do?I have the Remington and that ammo is giving me 1.125 inch groups at 200 yards.I’d like to stick with this ammo in the M1A if possible.
I only use milsurp ammo in my M14. I try to get the “better” milsurp however. I’m not into competition shooting and 7.62x51 is expensive enough in the surplus form, let alone the match ammo. Sounds like you are a good shooter with groups like that. I suspect the M1A is not as accurate but probably isn’t too far off.
