Spend more time shooting - and less time reloading (with a decent powder thrower - I use Redding)
At 600 yards in XTC matches, with 223, no reason to weigh.
308? It made me feel good to weigh charges,, but that is about it.
An M14 will never match a tuned bolt gun -- which is OK -- get used to it.
I dont keep up with HP rules anymore, but there should be a separate category for 30 cal rifles, with iron sights. Then your M14 should be able to kick ass every so often!
