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.

Souptown, in keeping with my suggestions for the M1A, see if you can locate IMI brass from Wildners in TN; they were B/O until January. Without going to the BR quality brass from Norma, the high spec IMI is what I use for accuracy without neck turning.javascript: x()
