Sold off my M1A / M14 years back but now bought a couple
Springfield Super Match rifles
1991 Springfield build
1992 Champion's Choice 1992 rear lugged receiver

Point in question have about
9 battle packs of South African ammo good to go in these rifles?
Couple battle parks of the Hirtenberger as well

Be nice to have Lake city M118 ammo but already own this?

I have shot S.African out of my JRA M14F and it ran smooth with no hang ups or issues.

GTG in my book.

I got some decent accuracy out of it.

As for the Hirt I have no experience. I'm sure someone on here will be along to fill you in though. Plenty of folks on here have hands on with it for sure.

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