    I'm curios as to what kind of accuracy everyone is getting with their M1A standard---not match---rifles. I was at the range this past weekend and got this group pictured. Shot groups like that all morning. This one was .6875 (11/16)" @ 100 yds using Federal GMM 168 gr loads. ImageUploadedBySpringfield Forum1409759739.546931.jpg

    Thanks Gumpy. Shooting from a bench with a bipod and sand sock sure help ;-)

    Thanks. That's a nice group there. How well do you like the EBR stock? I just dropped mine into a usgi fiberglass stock.

    Best part of a ebr is customizing the cheek weld and length of pull to fit you (big plus for me) can't express how much of a game changer that was for me. Free floats the barrel without bedding which is great. Downside is locking it in, once it's in its solid but I haven't taken it out yet and I'm not looking forward to the day that I do. I was gonna get a McMillan stock and have it bedded but than I wouldn't be able to adjust the length of pull and cheek weld. Since I've gotten the ebr I haven't looked back cheers
