Thumbs up 1st M1A Deer

Well, had the chance to take the LRB out to the field for some deer hunting. Spotted this little 8 pointer out in a thicket about 80 yrds. Could not get him to stop with all the grunting in the world, picked a spot and when the shoulder was in the scope squeezed of the shot. Went about 20 yrds and dropped.

LRB M25
SWFA 3x9 scope
Nosler 165 grain Ballistic Tip
PMC Brass
WLP
38.9 Grains 4064
I understand why the military went to the Black Gun, I humped the gun three days into the mountain and back wow is it heavy, or I'm getting older. Oh well good eating,, Next week plan to take the M1 out for the hunt..

I call this a 2 for. Took photo out at Whittington center in New Mexico a couple of years ago.



Second photo was taken the same day. This is for the concrete bench rest pistol hunters. And for the city boys, a tether can be attached to a hind leg on the dear so you don't have to walk to far to retrieve your game.

Two spikes, same evening. Non-antler restrictive county in Texas. First one dropped like he went to sleep, second came out to check out why his buddy decided to nap. Freezer is full.

Input please. Living in N Id finally and going to get an Elk tag next year and put in for a Moose tag. So not so concerned about taking Elk with the M1A but a little about the Moose. So if any of you have experience with the .308/7.62 and Moose I would like to hear about it.
To preface my experience I was, before moving, taking deer the size of a lot of the ones shown with .223. I will take the time to get the right shot. I try to shoot for the neck and head as I don't like to lose any more meat than necessary. I don't hunt for trophies.

Also I am not saying ANYTHING against what anybody has done by using a large caliber rifle for deer. I'm just trying to convey MY experience and hunting style.

Thanks

Winchester Super-X Ammunition 308 Winchester 180 Grain Power-Point - you're welcome. That load will take all game in NA inside 200-250 yards.

I am going by a thread I read years ago regarding this, helped me out a BUNCH, from those more knowledgeable than I was when first introduced to the last rifle I will ever own:

Springfield Armory Recommended ammo for our rifles chambered in .308

Any commercially produced, new in box .308 ammunition that meets the following requirements:

• Is a 147 to 180 grain bullet.
• Is full metal jacket (FMJ), hollow point (HP or BTHP), or ballistic tip type bullet.
• Hornady’s new superformance ammo is OK to shoot in the M1A but NOT recommended for the M1 Garand.
• Hornady tap ammo is better for the shorter barreled rifles.
• Black Hills re-manufactured ammo is ok to use.

You can also use SURPLUS 7.62X51 NATO ammo that meets the following requirements:

• Is clean and from sealed containers
• Is NATO spec. It will have a NATO spec mark on the case head and /or on the packaging that looks like a plus sign inside of a circle.

Ammunition NOT recommended for your rifle:

• Avoid using surplus ammo tha tis “loose” or “bulk” – is is inconsitant in size and can be reloads.
• Avoid using steel case ammo, it is VERY hard on your chamber and can reduce the life span of your rifle.
• Do not use “ light Magnum” type ammo.
• Do not use soft point (SP) ammo, the lead shavings can get into the action and jam it up. - (I SCRUB my rifle after hunting, and only utilize maybe 2-3 bullets a year to tag out, I seriously doubt this will cause much of a build-up)
• We do not recommend the use of any cast bullets.

For best accuracy we recommend:

• Federal Match or Black Hills match 168 or 175 grain
• Hornady Match/ custom 168 grain or Hornady TAP 110 or 168 grain.

Please visit web site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.308_Winchester for further comparison between .308 and 7.62 ammo.

Thank you for choosing Springfield Armory.

Have a nice day!
