M1A or AR-308

Need some advice. Which rifle will be more accurate? An M1A or an AR platform in the 308?

I hope the AR-308 will be more accurate since I'm taking delivery of one very soon.
Once I shoot it I will post the results.
I ordered a Rock River 308 with a 26" varmint barrel a year ago and I hope to get it in the next few weeks.

Re: M1A or AR-308

I have read many post on websites such as Sniperhide.com and they almost all say the AR platform is more accurate. The M1A definately scores high in style points but from what I gather, 1-2 MOA is the norm on most models. I also hear they take quite a bit of tuning to make them consistant in this range. I love my M1A NM but its just for casual range fun. If I wanted to get serious, an AR 10 would be the way to go.

what about the FNAR I shoot .600 groups at 100 yards with match ammo waiting for the weather to get better to work on hand loads.

I agree the M1A topped with a scope looks bad a**. But if the AR shoots better I would rather look less, and shoot more. Thanks for the replys.

Re: M1A or AR-308

I would have to vote for the M1A.

To me they are just more dependable and I like the gas system better.

I have the ARs and the M1A and they are both accurate but I still prefer the M1A
and would sell my ARs before parting with my M1A.

Just My opinion.

the AR is more accurate, M1A gets more style points.
