I'm addicted. Ignoring my other guns. I just got my first M1A NM in February and man is it Hungry. Rainy here today so spending the day reloading to feed my new habit. Had to order more brass, bullets and powder. My range only has 200 yds. Going to a range next weekend to stretch her legs out to 725 yds. Can't wait. Man this thing is addicting.
This forum can also be addictive. I have gained a lot. Thanks
There is only one way that you can beat this addiction and that is cold turkey .you must as soon as possible pack up your rifle all ammunition realoading supplies and components even cleaning supplies and send it all to me don't worry about thanking me it is tne least I can do for another forum member .
I am going to use 40.5gr H4895 with 168gr SMK and 168gr hornaday ELD, LC brass CCI LR, 2.80 OAL. Loaded some yesterday. Going to my 200 yd range today to chrono.
I have not put this gun at 200yds on paper yet but I can hit a 6 inch plate at 200 every shot off a bench. I have shot some 1.5 inch groups at 100 with a different load, lees than an inch at 50yds.
