My SAI Scout has defected!
I am not new to the M1a platform, having previously owned 2 M1a rifles in the past, both loaded models. For some reason I was never really happy with the rifles and eventually sold them.
My newly aquired M1a Scout is different. Short barrel to double as a HD rifle, but long enough to effectively engage targets at respectable ranges. Walnut furniture..it's hard not to warm up to a walnut stock. It fit me perfectly and I am happy. What to feed a US Made American newborn?...why American food of course!
My first range session was yesterday. On hand, 100 rounds of Remington 150gr .308. Function and reliability, flawless. Groups, 2.5" to 3" at 100. Ho hum...
I happened to also have 40 rounds of Silver Bear Russian ammo. I think why not? and let her bang. Function and reliability perfect. Groups 1 to 1.5" . 100 yard gong
.PING! 200. PING! 300 PING!!!
Strange enough...this American born baby likes borscht. Go figure.
