Those groups are about what it was designed to accomplish. I'd say that weapon is a keeper . Thanks for posting.

Great looking rifle. Like the M14/M1A those are addicting. I started with one NM M1A 4 years ago, and then a Garand. I now have 5 M1A's and 5 Garands, and I built four of those rifles. So beware of the addiction!!!!!!!

Gotta love the M1. I got my first in the late 80's, a Korean re import. It would not hold Elmer Keiths hat at 50 yds! Barrel just gone, so had it rebarreled with NM tube and it shot great, got me started in match shooting and lots of fun. Eventually sold it to a buddy, now deceased so I don't know what happens to it now. But I have my H&R DCM rifle and its not going anywhere. If you want yours to shoot tighter, glass bed it. It makes a lot of difference. And no the M1 stock is a club compared to an M14.

That sure is a nice looking stock! I've been prepping some 30-06 brass lately and thought about taking mine out tomorrow but I'm gonna stay inside where it's nice and warm! Just something special about shooting those old warhorses. And some nice shooting as well on your part

Nice report and good shooting! Good looking rifle.

You reload? I'd like to see the result with some good reloads.

Very nice looking piece of wood you have; I love my Garands! For as clean as the stock is, I would suspect that it has to at least have a faint cartouche... If it doesn't, I'd almost believe it to be commercial; it looks that nice.

One of the biggest kicks I get out of 'em is taking them to the range. First come the looks from afar, and then the slow walk-bys, and then they're standing around watching. I've let many people put a clip through them, and if it's a kid, I'll give them the en bloc they emptied with the spent brass in it as a souvenir...they really get a kick out of it.

I just sold the last of my Danish, Greek (AMA, not HXP) and Korean ammo today, but I scored a pile of surplus LC in bandoliers that I'm picking up on Saturday.
