Yeeeeeboy! Do I love my rifle! I picked up my M1A loaded back in February. I've been very interested in the vortex viper pst 1-4 for awhile now. I finally got them together a couple weeks ago and tonight I finally got the chance to do my 100yd range test. I'm very happy with the results. Mostly it shot the Turkish MKE 7.62x51 ammo at Walmart. That was to get close to where I wanted my zero. I finished off with two groups of Federal Premium 168SMK. Well, pictures will show it much better than me rambling.







I'll be honest I have never had a rifle make me 'feel' accurate. I'm a decent shot but this rifle makes me feel like I'm on a whole new level. It's going with me on my moose hunt and I can't wait!BGRIN1

I lost all of my rifles & handguns in a mishap on Rio Grande when the barge hit a sandbar and sank.

Congratulations! You're in for a ride, now! Go get some AE-168gr OTM ammo and see what she can really do.

You're suffering the initial symptoms; after spending a few hundred dollars on ammo that will feed the present narcosis, you'll spend a few hundred more dollars on reloading equipment so you can design and manufacture even more accurate ammunition suitable for anything you wish to do. Along the way, you'll learn about lubricants, metals, machining, mechanicals and ballistics; it's a great hobby that will pay off in many ways.
