Re: reloading for m1a
Yes, but what powders do yhou have? I suggest 41.4 gr. /VV550 for 2,591'/sec and a group of 0.163 if your rifle is capable of that accuracy. That powder is not temperature sensitive. If you want an easy to find powder, 41.0 gr of H-4895 in L.C. brass with cci 200 primers is good starting place but watch case weights as commercial cases are cheap and you get exactly what you paid for.
