So, this fellow found and M1A in a pawn shop.
Took it to the range.
Surprise.
Converted to .243.
Sold to myself after some conversations.
Anyone have the same caliber and what hints have you for shooting?
Thanks, Paul
Houston, Texas

Springfield office sent me an e-mail that it had left them as a .308.
Heavy, 12.4 lbs.

I would shoot it and compare its accuracy & reliability.

It is a good caliber for Texas deer especially if you reload.

Other than that I'm in the dark.
