Hi guys! Long time no see! Sorry I've been away for so long but I'm back and I have a question to ask ya'll. I currently own a standard Springfield M1A, built in Oct 1979 and a CMP service grade issue Springfield M1 Garand, manufactured in May 1942. I plan on taking one of them hunting here. I was getting my M1 zeroed and was using 5 round clips, first getting a zero with the M2 ball ammo. Since then though I wanted to use commercial grade soft point 30-06 so I bought a Schuster gas plug to replace the G.I. plug, so I won't damage the op rod. My zero has changed now to extreme low elevation and extreme right side windage. Not sure if I wanna take it hunting now. I trust my M1A though and want to consider taking it. One, do you have any recommendations for the M1 Garand I'm having issues with, and two are there any 5 round mags or a magazine block I can legally use?
