M1A + M118LR (from CMP)

I know the rule for bullet weight in M1As is to stay less than 175. The M118LR is 173, but does anyone know if it is good for the M1A?

I know that the M24 bolt action is in use, but is the M118LR you can get from the CMP a "bolt action only round" or safe to use in a M1A without beating the heck out of it.
