Re: M1A national match reload
The M1As all like the M 852 match but if you can't find this ammo the powders to use are
4895 or 4064 with standard large rifle primers and 168gr SMKs. The other powders may not
produce the proper port pressures.
Maybe some of the M1A shooters will chime in.
Powder charges are around 40+grs in order to reach proper port pressures for smooth
operation. When the port pressure is right it will stack all the discharged brass in a neat
little pile at 2 o'clock.
With these loads you can hunt and target shoot ,or substitute 165 gr hunting bullets.
