adequate? yes of course. Optimum? hardly.

my lightest M1A tops the scales at around 10 pounds. The iron sights suck for hunting. Add glass and mounts, and you are pushing 12 pounds, and thats with a barrel length that is very unhandy.
You also have to be careful about the ammunition. The M1A is head spaced for military spec 7.62 NATO, not SAMMI spec .308 Winchester.
