i have never seen/ heard of a hunting round in 7.62 nato as it was pointed out to me that it is a military round and the military doesnt hunt with there rifles. i ended up making my own only to find out that i could shoot both types thru my rifle.Any idea where to find any 7.62 x 51 hunting rounds ? Or they don’t make them ?
Congratulations on your 2 digit M1A and welcome to the M14 Forum and the Devine club. Elmer Ballance built some really fine rifles. Elmer believes most of his rifles were used in competition and most have been re barreled over the years. That makes the early Texas low serial number M1A rifles with the original correct LH Gun Co or Rt1 BX 210 Devine TX hand stamped barrel addresses very scarce and really hard to find. Any really low 1 or 2 digit Texas M1A is a great find and addition to a collection.I have a low serial number 000080 M1A. Does anyone know how to find any history on this rifle and if it’s rare ?
