Welcome on board nplaschka, pull up an old ammunition crate and sit awhile. This here Gun Board is a great place for information on our beloved M14 Battlerifle and military surplus ammunition for feeding her. Again welcome on board and have yourself a great week ahead.
Advice, if solicited, will not be sparse. Lots of experience here, with lots of variations. If in this thread, or a new one, let the guys know what you're looking to build, if not by hardware, because that's what you're asking about, then by purpose and preference.
