Welcome aboard, acroed, I think you will want to visit the "Firing Line" forum as that is the place to ask and discover. GI2 I'm sure you will enjoy all of the forums and being here with us too. Have fun.
Welcome to the forum from NorCal. You will find that there is a wealth of information here in years of threads. If you cannot find it here, just ask. Your receiver question would best be researched in the Firing Line section. I don't know the receiver but, there are many here with all the history on it you want. Have a good time.
Welcome on board acroed, pull up an old ammo crate and sit awhile. This here Gun Board is a great place for information on M14/M1A Rifles and Military Surplus Ammunition. Again welcome aboard and have yourself a great weekend Sir. I know that someone will be by shortly to answer your question.
The 10 Golden Rules of Ammo:
1) You can never have too much ammo on hand. 1k rounds per battle rifle is a good minimum to start with (fubar). 2) Supplies of good surplus run out before you know it, and usually when you're running low on ammoso buy plenty while its available. 3) When in doubt about how much ammo you should buy, refer to rule #1. 4) Ammo is meant to be shot, so shoot often. 5) Because of rule #4, ammo must be replenished often as well. 6) When replenishing supply of ammo, refer to rules #1 through #3. 7) You must buy at least twice as much ammo as you shoot (fubar). 8) Always store ammo in a cool dry place (TEA). The only time you have to much ammoon hand is when you have a house fire(Slick). 9) If you don't have room in your house to store ammo per rule #8, build a bunker or a cellar in your back yard for storing ammo (TEA). 10) Friends don't let friends buy Indian surplus ammo (TEA). Or Never buy surplus ammo from a country where you wouldn't drink the water (midrat).
